Defeats in successive matches against Girona and Tottenham have made victory essential against one of La Liga’s strugglers this Sunday.

Team News :
Real Madrid :
Madrid received a welcome piece of news on Friday when Gareth Bale took to the training pitch, and the Welshman should be available for selection at the weekend after suffering a hip injury.
Dani Carvajal, Mateo Kovacic and Raphael Varane remain on the casualties list for Zidane, leaving the coach with little opportunity to rotate following Wednesday’s comprehensive defeat at the hands of Tottenham.
Las Palmas :
Jonathan Viera has played all 10 of Las Palmas’ La Liga games this season, but will be an absentee for the next month due to an arm injury. He joins Alen Halilovic and Oussama Tannane on the sidelines.
Pako Ayestaran was forced to replace Viera with Tana just 14 minutes into the 3-1 home defeat to Deportivo La Coruna, and could start the 27-year-old or even ex-Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani in his place.
Potential Starting XI :
Real Madrid : Casilla; Achraf, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Isco; Ronaldo, Benzema.
