Real Madrid Team News & Preview
Real Madrid host Granada in La Liga this weekend and Los Blancos will be looking to extend their fantastic winning run.
Zinedine Zidane’s men have won their last four consecutive league games at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and should be able to beat Granada this weekend as well.
Despite the lack of clean sheets, they are far superior to their opponents and should be able to outscore them with ease.
The only worry for the home side is the number of first team players they will be missing for the visit of Granada tomorrow. Los Blancos are without Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Kovacic and Lucas Vazquez due to suspension and injuries.
Predicted Real Madrid Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Navas; Carvajal, Nacho, Varane, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Ronaldo, Benzema, James
