How Real Madrid could line up against Melilla

Sports Mole takes a look at how Real Madrid could line up for Thursday's Copa del Rey clash with Melilla.

Real Madrid will be bidding to make the last-16 stage of the Copa del Rey when they welcome Melilla to the Bernabeu on Thursday afternoon.

Los Blancos ran out 4-0 winners in the first leg of their last-32 clash at the end of October, and therefore only a miracle will prevent the European champions from progressing to the next round.

Santiago Solari's team will enter the match off the back of a 2-0 win over Valencia in La Liga on Saturday night.

As for Melilla, the third-tier outfit have won all five of their league fixtures since suffering that defeat to Madrid on home soil.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how a much-changed Madrid could line up in front of their own supporters on Thursday afternoon.


POSS RM XI vs. MEL

Out: Nacho (knee), Casemiro (ankle)
Doubtful: Alvaro Odriozola (knock)

Head coach Solari will ring the changes from the clash with Valencia. Nacho and Casemiro are both still absent for Madrid, while Alvaro Odriozola faces a late fitness test for the match at the Bernabeu.

Keylor Navas will replace Thibaut Courtois between the sticks, while Javi Sanchez and Sergio Reguilon are both expected to start at the back.

There should also be a midfield spot for Federico Valverde, while Marcos Llorente and Dani Ceballos should also be selected in the middle of the park.

Karim Benzema played and scored in the first leg against Melilla, but Mariano Diaz is expected to get the nod for this match, with Vinicius Junior and Isco also coming into the starting XI.

Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are all likely to be rested ahead of the trip to Huesca at the weekend.
