WATCH LIVE : Real Madrid VS Las Palmas
Real Madrid will be without the services of Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao. Meanwhile, Dani Carvajal, who has missed their last two outings is still a doubt for this fixture.
Arda Guler and Vinicius Junior have recently returned from injury. But only the latter expected to play a part in this home game, with the former suffering a setback in his recovery.
Carlo Ancelotti made a few tactical changes for the Madrid derby. But they did not really work out well for him. As a result, he is expected to return to the 4-4-2 formation with a diamond in the centre of the park. Kepa Arrizabalaga will continue in goal.
Lucas Vazquez and Fran Garcia will continue as the full-backs. Once again, it will be Antonio Rüdiger and David Alaba in the heart of the defence.
Eduardo Camavinga will feature as the defensive midfielder in the centre of the park. Federico Valverde and Luka Modric will be on either side of the French international.
Jude Bellingham will continue as an attacking midfielder behind the two forwards. Finally, Brahim Diaz might get a start here alongside Brazilian sensation Rodrygo Goes, with Joselu finding himself on the bench again.
Real Madrid Lineup (4-4-2)
Kepa, Nacho, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy, Tchouameni, Camavinga, Valverde, Brahim, Joselu, Rodrygo.
The visitors will be without the services of Fabio Gonzalez, Alberto Moleiro, Benito Ramirez, and Sandro Ramirez. Meanwhile, Mika Marmol is suspended for this fixture.
Garcia Pimienta is expected to stick to the 4-5-1 formation, where Alvaro Valles will be in goal. Julian Araujo and Sergi Cardona will start out wide as the full-backs.
Kirian Rodriguez who scored a late winner in their last outing will continue in the centre of the park alongside Maximo Perrone and Enzo Loiodice.
The trio will look to dictate the pace of the game and not allow the Madrid midfielder to dominate the proceedings. Meanwhile, former Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi will be the loan forward up top.
