Real Madrid will clash heads with Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they try to secure maximum points on their travels. Los Blancos suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Sheriff Tarispol in midweek, so Carlo Ancelotti would be desperate to get a positive response from his players this weekend.

The Madrid giants could set themselves up in a 4-3-3 formation with Ancelotti expected to make a couple of changes to his starting XI for this game. Both Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric are expected to play for the start after they were rested against Sheriff earlier this week.

4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Espanyol

Defence

Thibaut Courtois will feature in goal for the Madrid outfit despite conceding two goals against Sheriff in his last outing. Eder Militao is expected to resume his partnership with David Alaba at the heart of Ancelotti’s defence as they look to keep things tidy at the back versus Espanyol this weekend.

Lucas Vazquez could fill in as a makeshift right-back while Nacho assumes the duties as a makeshift left-back. Both of them will have to perform their defensive duties well if Los Blancos are to earn a clean sheet on the road.

Miguel Gutierrez will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the left-back position.

Midfield

Ancelotti’s midfield will be comprised of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Federico Valverde as they try to establish their superiority over the home team at the centre of the park. Modric got a rest in midweek, so he will be fresh for this upcoming match in La Liga.

Eduardo Camavinga might get a chance to impress off the bench after having a tough game in midweek.

Attack

Vinicius Junior will function as the left-sided wide player while Eden Hazard hopes to prove his worth from the right flank. Karim Benzema will operate as Ancelotti’s chief centre-forward following another goal-scoring display from him earlier this week.

Luka Jovic and Rodrygo will have to settle for a place on the bench but might come to influence the game in the latter stages if Los Blancos are in need of a goal by then.
