Real Madrid return to Endesa League action as they host Gran Canaria on matchday seven (12:30pm CEST). After coming through a nail-biting clash with Fenerbahçe at the WiZink Center on Thursday, Laso's team are back at the madridista sports center looking to pick up a seventh consecutive win and continue their unbeaten run in the domestic competition.
Our team head into a demanding fixture against opposition who have started the season strongly. Gran Canaria sit fifth with four wins and two defeats, although in recent head-to-heads, Real Madrid have won the last 11 meetings with the islanders.

The madridistas' defensive efforts will be key in stopping their rivals, who have averaged 80.8 points so far. Gran Canaria's strength lies in the paint, where Pustovyi (10.2 points) and Shurna (11.2 PIR) are performing superbly. Laso's men will also have to keep an eye on the three-point line where Dylan Ennis is converting 41.7% of his triples per game.
Real Madrid will have to show their strength at the WiZink Center once again. Our team are one of the top performers in the Endesa League in terms of rebounds (36.6 per game), while Laso also has a wealth of offensive talent at his disposal, currently registering 82 points per game on average thanks largely to players like Poirier, Yabusele and Heurtel.
