Following the slap received by Barcelona in Valencia (2-0), Real Madrid have a golden opportunity to break away alone at the head of La Liga. The White House is going to Valladolid this Sunday (9 p.m.), at the end of the 21st chapter of Liga. Zinedine Zidane has summoned a group of 19 players who do not include defenseman Dani Carvajal, suspended.
Although deprived of Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio in the offensive sector, the three-color technician did not retain neither Vinicius Jr, nor Brahim Diaz, nor Mariano Diaz. Karim Benzema will be accompanied by Luka Jovic, Rodrygo and Lucas Vazquez. Otherwise the rest remains classic with captain Sergio Ramos in defense or the executives Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro in the middle.
French defenders Raphaël Varane and Ferland Mendy will also be there, along with second goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.
The Madrid group: Courtois, Areola, Altube – Ramos, Varane, Militao, Mendy, Marcelo, Nacho – Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Valverde, Isco, James – Benzema, Jovic, Rodrygo, Vazquez
