Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Real v Malaga

Spanish La Liga
 
Teams: Real Madrid v Málaga
 
Date: 25 November 2017
 
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu
 
Having fallen 10 points behind leaders FC Barcelona last weekend, Real Madrid host Málaga at the Bernabeu on Saturday as they look to get their season back on track.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 17h15.
 
Los Blancos drew 0-0 to Atlético in their last league fixture, but a 6-0 drubbing of APOEL in midweek will have done wonders for their confidence. The out-of-form Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo each netted a brace and will look to carry their newfound momentum into this game.
 
Real Madrid sit third on the log, while Málaga headed into the gameweek third from bottom. However, like Zinedine Zidane’s side, the visitors head into this game off the back of a much-needed victory following a poor start to the season.
 
Last weekend, Málaga edged Deportivo La Coruña 3-2, with Roberto Rosales and Chory Castro scoring before Borja Bastón ended his year-long goal drought with an 84th minute winner.
 
This clash presents an opportunity for both sides to turn their respective campaigns around. As the La Liga table begins to take shape, it is one that neither can afford to spurn.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Real: Casilla; Carvajal, Vallejo, Varane, Marcelo; Isco, Casemiro, Kroos, Lucas Vázquez Ronaldo, Benzema.
 
Malaga: Roberto, Juan Carlos, Luis Hernández, Diego González, Rosales, Adrián, Recio, Peñaranda, Chory Castro, Keko, Rolán.
