Missing Players and team news:
The good news for Zidane is that Real Madrid’s injury crisis has abated in recent weeks and a number of first-team regulars are finding their way back into the side. Frontman Mariano Diaz and defender Daniel Carvajal will both likely be unavailable for this tie due to injury. Escriba is expected to name an unchanged team from the 11 that dispatched Sevilla last time out. However, midfielder Emiliano Rigoni is currently out nursing a hamstring injury.
