How Real Madrid could line up against Rayo Vallecano

Sports Mole takes a look at how Real Madrid could line up in Saturday's La Liga clash with Rayo Vallecano.

Real Madrid will be looking to bounce back from Wednesday's shock Champions League defeat to CSKA Moscow when they welcome Rayo Vallecano to the Bernabeu on Saturday night.

Los Blancos were booed off the field by their own supporters on Wednesday night, with CSKA completing a Champions League group-stage double over the reigning European champions.

Santiago Solari's side had already booked their spot in the next round as group winners though, and they will be looking for their third straight La Liga win this weekend.

As it stands, the capital giants are fourth in La Liga, two points off second-placed Sevilla but five points from division leaders Barcelona.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Madrid could line up in front of their own supporters.


POSS RM XI vs. RAYO

Out: Nacho (knee), Casemiro (ankle)

Nacho and Casemiro remain on the sidelines for Madrid, but Toni Kroos made his comeback from a knee problem in the defeat to CSKA.

Kroos should return to the starting XI alongside Luka Modric and Dani Ceballos in a midfield position, while Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal will also return to the starting team this weekend.

Lucas Vazquez has arguably been Real's best attacker in recent weeks, and the Spaniard will make the side having not featured against CSKA.

Gareth Bale picked up an ankle problem during the second half of Wednesday's affair, but the Welshman should be fit to start alongside Karim Benzema in attack.

Isco, though, was booed off by the club's fans against CSKA, and the Spaniard is unlikely to feature.
