Los Blancos travel to the Nuevo Los Cármenes Stadium to take on Granada. After Barca`s draw with Levante, Real Madrid now have their destiny in their own hands. Meanwhile, Granada (currently placed 10th) are safe from relegation and have achieved what was expected of them for the season.
Real Madrid is currently on a run of some lukewarm performances as they are currently winless in their last 2 fixtures. Zidane’s men will be looking to secure all 3 points from the Andalucians in order to keep the pressure on Atlético Madrid who are two points ahead of Madrid with only 2 games left in the race for the La Liga title.
Real Madrid Team News
Zidane’s side have strung together a 15-game unbeaten run in La Liga and have not lost away from home domestically since November – winning seven and drawing five on the road since defeat at Valencia.
Real Madrid’s defensive concerns are well-documented as Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Ferland Mendy remain out, while their full-back options may also be depleted further as Marcelo and Alvaro Odriozola are not thought to be at 100%, despite taking part in team training on Wednesday.
Federico Valverde is expected to start on the right flank while Castilla Star Miguel Gutierrez may get a start in the left back.
Luka Modric may get a rest as he played a line of games.
Madridistas can expect Isco to get the start if Modric starts on the bench.
