After booking their place in the Champions League semi-finals, the Whites will be looking to take all three points at La Rosaleda.
After their Champions League exploits, the Whites are back in LaLiga action. Having secured their place among the top four clubs in Europe for the eighth season in a row, Real Madrid turn their attentions back to domestic competition. They head to La Rosaleda, the scene of last year's LaLiga triumph, looking to bag all three points against Málaga (8:45pm CEST).

Zidane's charges will be hoping to continue their fine form on the road, where they have won the last four games on the bounce, scoring 10 goals and conceding just two (1-2 against PSG and Éibar, and 0-3 against Las Palmas and Juventus). “We're on a fine run and ready to put in a good performance" said the Whites' coach.


Aside from the injured Nacho, the full squad completed the training session overseen by Zidane in the build-up to the game. Among them was Benzema, who netted one of the two goals which secured the win last time out at La Rosaleda. Málaga is one of the Frenchman's favourite opponents in the league; he has netted against them on 8 occasions.

The Andalusian side need a victory to stay alive in the competition. The team led by José González, who came in to replace Míchel in January, sit in 20th spot with just 17 points. At home they've managed 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 defeats. Their last clash on home soil ended in a 1-0 win over Villarreal.
