Real Madrid Team News & Preview
Real Madrid host Sporting Gijon in La Liga this weekend and Los Blancos will be looking to extend their fantastic run of form with another win at home.
Real Madrid are four points ahead of second-placed Barcelona and will look to maintain that gap. Zinedine Zidane’s men have won their last three league games against Atletico Madrid, Leganes and Alaves and have kept two clean sheets in the process.
The Spanish giants were dealt a major injury blow yesterday and Zidane will be without star player Gareth Bale for a few months now. The Welsh international is set to undergo surgery on his ankle. Morata, Kroos, Pepe and Marcelo are also injured for this game.
Predicted Real Madrid Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho; Modric, Kovacic, Isco; Ronaldo, Benzema, James
Sporting Gijon Team News & Preview
Sporting Gijon will be dreading their trip to Santiago Bernabeu this weekend.
The away side are winless in their last nine La Liga games. Gijon have also picked up just one draw on their travels since January 2016. They are in the relegation zone as a result of that and will struggle against an in-form Real Madrid side.
Furthermore, they have a poor record against Los Blancos and have failed to win nine of their last ten matches against the capital club.
The away side will be without winger Burgui for this game. The player cannot play against his parent club in the league, due to the clauses in his loan deal. Dani Ndi is the only injury worry for Gijon this week.
Predicted Sporting Gijon Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Cuellar; Lillo, Amorebieta, Mere, Canella; Carmona, Cases, Alvarez, Lopez; Viguera, Cop
