Real Madrid possible XI

The big team news for Real Madrid was that there was a La Liga debut for 18-year-old Moroccan global Achraf Hakimi, who was handed a start due to the absences of Dani Carvajal and Marcelo at the back. But, as always, we don't like to take any risks when a player has even a small problem.

Bale was left out of the squad for the game following the calf strain which forced him off in their 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last Tuesday.

"I'm not anxious about the BBC, we will see them all soon".

Wales face two enormous games in World Cup qualification during the global break.

"We will see tomorrow if he is with us, then he will go with his national team, if he has to go with his national team", added Zidane.

"It will depend on his injury niggles and his state of fitness, nothing else".

The other boy, also slashed in the left arm multiple times , was treated for life-threatening injuries, police said. Cedeno snapped, they said. "He was always sad, looking down", said friend and neighbor Jay Lopez, 27.

Imagine, the last 10 matches between these teams have consistently won Real Madrid.

The current Espanyol manager's second and final campaign at the Bernabeu coincided with an early season collapse that would see the champions eventually limp into sixth place, 17 points behind league winners Atletico Madrid and out of European contention.

That is exclusively down to Madrid's poor home form this season. However, Madrid have yet to win at the Bernabeu this season, and Espanyol have pulled off some impressive draws this season. "The most important thing for him is to play and be on the pitch against Espanyol", he concluded.

Marcelo and Theo Hernandez are both also unavailable for the Blancos, meaning Nacho continues on the left side of defence.

Coach Quique Sanchez Flores, a former player and youth-team coach at Madrid, knows his side can not afford to let their standards slip at the Bernabeu, though.

Barca had earlier extended their ideal start in La Liga to seven games in extraordinary circumstances as they beat Las Palmas 3-0 behind closed doors at the 99,000 capacity Camp Nou following the police crackdown over an independence vote deemed illegal by the Spanish government. So now with Espanyol coming to the Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid will be hoping that their fortunes will change for the better.
