Sports Mole previews the match in La Liga between Real Madrid and Cordoba.

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to return to the starting lineup for his team's La Liga clash with Cordoba.

The 29-year-old started Friday's Spanish Super Cup defeat against Atletico Madrid on the substitutes' bench, but the Portuguese attacker proved his fitness during the second half.

Ronaldo's inclusion could see James Rodriguez return to the bench, while Angel di Maria and Sami Khedira are unlikely to feature as they continue to be linked with a move away from the Bernabeu

Cordoba boss Albert Ferrer has made numerous additions to his squad after the minnows secured promotion from the Segunda division last year.

Aleksandar Pantic and Fede Cartabia could feature after loan moves from Villarreal and Valencia respectively, while former Newcastle United striker Xisco is expected to lead the attack.
