Zinedine Zidane will rely on his usual starters for the crucial match against Villarreal this Wednesday in La Liga.
The French manager will make two changes in defence, as Daniel Carvajal and Pepe are injured, and he has chosen Danilo and Raphael Varane to replace them. Sergio Ramos and Marcelo will complete the defence line. In midfield, as expected, Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will feature.
The main doubt was whether the Los Blancos boss would chose Lucas Vazquez, Jese Rodriguez or Isco to replace Gareth Bale. The Frenchman has finally picked Vazquez to accompany Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in the forward line.
This is Real Madrid’s confirmed starting eleven: Navas; Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Vazquez, Benzema, Ronaldo.
This is Villarreal’s confirmed starting eleven: Asenjo; Gaspar, Bailly, Bonera, Rukavina; Dos Santos, Soriano, Triguero, Suarez; Lopez, Bakambu.
