How Real Madrid could line up against Real Sociedad

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Monday's La Liga clash with Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid will be aiming to register their sixth straight win in all competitions when they welcome Real Sociedad to the Spanish capital on Monday night.

Zinedine Zidane's side will enter the contest off the back of an impressive 1-0 victory away to Atalanta BC in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash on Wednesday evening.

Los Blancos have also won each of their last four in the league to rise into second position in the table, just three points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who they face next weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Madrid could line up against Real Sociedad.


POSS RMA XI vs. SOC

Out: Dani Carvajal (hamstring), Marcelo (calf), Eder Militao (muscle), Sergio Ramos (knee), Alvaro Odriozola (hamstring), Federico Valverde (muscle), Rodrygo Goes (hamstring), Eden Hazard (muscle)
Doubtful: Karim Benzema (ankle)

Madrid's injury situation is not particularly easing at the moment, with Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Odriozola, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo Goes and Eden Hazard all ruled out.

Karim Benzema has made progress in his recovery from an ankle problem, but it seems unlikely that the Frenchman will feature in this match, with a return against Atletico next weekend more realistic.

As a result, Zidane could decide to select the same XI that started against Atalanta in the Champions League, with Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos again featuring as the midfield three.

Lucas Vazquez will retain his spot at right-back, while Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio are expected to feature as the wide players in a front three.

The only main talking point comes at centre-forward, where Zidane must choose between Isco and Mariano Diaz; the former was given the nod against Atalanta in a false nine position, while the latter started against Real Valladolid in the league last weekend.
