After registering a controversial win over Ajax on Wednesday in the coveted UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid return to domestic matters when they host Girona in La Liga on Sunday. Real are hosting a side they defeated in the last eight of the Copa del Rey in January by an aggregate scoreline of 7-3. However, Santiago Solari’s side will need to prevail once more this time without Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric. The Croatia captain and 2018 World Cup finalist miss out with through a yellow card suspension as Eusebio Sacristan’s side hope to replicate their famous upset of 2017 at Santiago Bernabeu.Also Read - Ballon D'Or 2022: Why Karim Benzema Deserves The Award More Than Anyone Else
In the La Liga table, Real sit nine points adrift off league leaders Barcelona with 15 games left this season. Los Blancos will still harbour hopes of breaking the Catalan club’s stronghold on the title. Fortunately for Solari, the availability of Sergio Ramos will boost Real’s confidence as his ban only extends to Champions League encounters. Dani Ceballos, Casemiro and Toni Kroos are the likely midfield trio then in a 4-3-3 formation that may also see key strikers Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema rested. The visitors are looking to pick up their first win since November when they travel to the Champions League holders, though they are missing a host of key faces.
