Starting XI: Las Palmas v Real Madrid
Spanish LaLiga Starting XI: Las Palmas v Real Madrid 31 March 2018
Teams: Las Palmas v Real Madrid
Date: 31 March 2018
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria
Real Madrid resume LaLiga action with a trip to Estadio de Gran Canaria to face Las Palmas on Saturday.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h30.
The 6-3 thrashing of Girona signaled prior to the international break showed the Galacticos' intent to push on for a top-three finish, with the hopes of retaining their title well out of their reach thanks to the steam train from FC Barcelona.
The last encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu that produced nine goals in total and four from a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, put them only four points behind Atletico Madrid, who went down 2-1 to Villarreal.
This pre-break momentum may just be what Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane asked for as they visit a side with the second leakiest defence in the league.
Moreover, as much they are the outright favourites to walk away with maximum points, they will have their work cut out for them after they were held in the corresponding fixture last season.
Zidane, however, has decided to rest Ronaldo, Marcelo and Toni Kroos, while Isco and Sergio Ramos miss out through injury.
Here's how they line up:
Las Palmas: TBC.
Real Madrid: Navas; Nacho, Vallejo, Varane, Theo; Lucas, Casemiro, Modric, Asensio; Bale, Benzema.
