Real Madrid will enter this match after a narrow 1:0 victory in La Liga against Granada in the last match. That one saw them increasing their advantage over Sevilla to six points. In the course of their six previous matches, Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid has turned their attacks into goals a total of 10 times, giving them an average of 1.67. Despite the story that Karim Benzema is a worn-out player at the beginning of the season, the Frenchman denied this season and showed that Real Madrid could not do without him. Carlo Ancelotti is slowly returning Real Madrid to the path of glory, and fans adore the Italian who brought a lot of joy to Real. However, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti currently has to contend with reduced team options. Mariano Díaz (Pelvis Injury) and Ferland Mendy (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here. Karim Benzema will likely be out of the contest as well.
