Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari would be looking to build on the purple patch his side have hit off late winning four out of their last five games in all competition. It has not been an easy ride for the Spaniard since taking over the hot seat at Los Blancos with the squad underperforming on several occasions. They travel to Espanyol next who are not in the best of form who have won just one game in the past nine league games. Pressure is definitely going to be on the home side who cannot afford to drop more points. Real Madrid though would be looking to consolidate their position in the top four with a win.

Los Blancos will be without a host of first-team regulars like Jesus Navaz, Gareth Bale, Jesus Vallejo and Marco Asensio who are battling injuries. Isco has not been in the playing eleven recently but could be recalled as Madrid lack a playmaker in the middle. The return of Tony Kroos against Girona from the bench must have lifted the mood in the Madrid camp and the German international should start against Espanyol. Raphael Varane should also be back in the team after missing the Cup tie against Girona.
Espanyol defeated Real Madrid at home last season and they tend to play well at home compared to on their travels. Oscar Duarte’s hip injury sidelines him from the match and his absence at the back could hurt the home team. He is joined on the treatment table by fellow defenders Naldo and David Lopez which is a huge blow for their coach Rubi. The trio of Diego Lopez, Victor Sanchez, and Javi Puado will return to the starting eleven to add more quality in Espanyol’s play. Real Madrid will get their much needed three points which will also mean a third straight victory for the European champion.
