Top Real Madrid players missing in action during Los Blancos’ 6-2 routing of Depotivo La Coruna are back in the mix for Saturday’s crucial clash against Valencia.
Coach Zinedine Zidane successfully deplored his reserves against Deportivo and that means that players like Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema should be fresh enough to start and contribute.
However, it’d also be smart to give them some more rest as Los Blancos would play a very tough Madrid Derby against Atletico next Tuesday.
Valencia managed to beat Real Madrid last February after a very poor performance by Zidane’s men, so Los Blancos will need to give their very best to avenge that loss and earn the three points they need.
Real Madrid host Valencia in what will be another crucial match for Los Blancos’ title run just three days ahead of the Champions League semifinals against Atletico Madrid.
Real Madrid thrashed Deportivo La Coruña on Wednesday with another great show given by Isco and company. Perhaps, the Spanish playmaker, Asensio, James or Morata deserve to play more minutes, but it’s very unlikely that they have another chance on Saturday.
Bale is injured, so there is room for another playmaker who should be Isco. Besides, Sergio Ramos returns from suspension, so Nacho should rest on the bench.
Valencia have no goal in the end of the season, because they are very far from the relegation zone and they won’t arrive to the Europa League positions. Voro’s team hasn’t won in the last three games, being defeated in the last two against Málaga and Real Sociedad. Zaza and Cancelo are suspended, whereas Rodrigo and Abdennour are injured.
