The madridistas will hope to win in front of the home crowd and continue on from the stellar debut they made at Balaídos, which left them top of the table. Zidane's side's home debut record is a positive one: having gone 13 seasons unbeaten (10 wins and 3 draws).
“We're happy to be back at the Bernabéu and we need a repeat of what happened in Vigo to move forward”, claimed Zidane in his press conference. Carvajal is back after being banned for the first game, but Modric, who was sent off at Balaídos, will not be available. Asensio, Brahim, Hazard and Rodrygo are all still out due to injury.
