Real Madrid face a tough challenge as they take on Malaga on Sunday. The Andalusians are one of the teams in better shape in La Liga at the moment and could put an end on Los Blancos hopes of winning the title.

Thus, Zidane is expected to lineup all his regular starters. The Frenchman will not rotate any of his stars this time, knowing that the match will not be easy at all.

The only change in the lineup will be Nacho Fernandez replacing Raphael Varane, who was sent off last week against Athletic Bilbao and will be suspended.

The 25-year-old will feature in the centre of defense alongside Sergio Ramos, with Marcelo and Daniel Carvajal at the sides.

James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Isco are expected to form the midfield line, while Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will be the forwards.

This is Real Madrid’s projected starting eleven: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Fernandez, Marcelo; James Rodriguez, Modric, Kroos, Isco; Benzema, Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, Malaga’s boss Javi Gracia has several losses in midfield, with Castro, Atsu, Perez and Tissone remaining on the sidelines. Fornals, Camacho, Recio and Juanpi are expected to form the midfield line.

This is Malaga’s projected eleven: Kameni; Rosales, Albentosa, Weligton, Torres; Fornals, Camacho, Recio, Juanpi; Charles, Cop.
