Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao, 2020 The League: Planned lineups

Real Madrid will host Athletic Bilbao tonight and coach Zinedine Zidane will have a good chance to make some rotations after the past two difficult weeks with three very intense games for Los Blancos against Sevilla, Gladbach and Atletico de Madrid.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Rodrygo, Benzema.

Athletic Bilbao predicted XI: Simon, Capa, Nuñez, Martinez, Yuri, Garcia, Lopez, Garcia, Williams, Muniain, Villalibre.

Casemiro is suspended, so Fede Valverde will almost certainly return to the starting lineup. Players like Marcelo, Nacho, Asensio, Isco or Rodrygo could also have the chance to start tonight, as there are some beginners who could get some rest.

In addition, Athletic have not impressed this season, so Real Madrid must take care of business and continue their momentum after their last three wins against quality opponents. Someday Zidane will have to rely on some reservations. Is tonight a good time to do that?
