Real Madrid vs Valencia – LaLiga Nacho and Varane at centre-back again
Real Madrid currently have a very lengthy injury report, but Dani Carvajal has removed his name from the list this past week and he is back in the line-up for the team’s Sunday afternoon match against Valencia.
He is joined in the back line by Nacho, Raphael Varane and Ferland Mendy, with the defence one of the areas hit hardest by the injury crisis.
Up front, Karim Benzema will be flanked by Marco Asensio and Vinicius as Real Madrid look to earn three points that will allow them to keep pace with Atletico Madrid.
The complete Real Madrid line-up is as follows: Thibaut Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Nacho, Raphael Varane, Ferland Mendy; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, Vinicius.
