Real Madrid travel to an in-form Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening for match day two of the Champions League.
Los Merengues have dropped four points in their last two domestic matches since struggling to overcome Sporting Lisbon in their Group F opener.
Casemiro and Marcelo will miss out through injury, which means Fabio Coentrão could make his first start for Madrid for over a season.
A big task for Zinedine Zidane will be how to quell the danger from Dortmund’s counter attacks, especially as Casemiro will be out again. Perhaps he will give Mateo Kovacic another chance to impress alongside Luka Modric, with Toni Kroos being the deeper lying of the midfield three that Zidane usually prefers to employ.
