Real Madrid travel to Extremadura to face Cacereño in the round of last 32 of the Copa del Rey.
This will be the first game that Los Blancos will be playing in the tournament. Carlo Ancelotti is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that beat Valladolid on Friday.
Thibaut Courtois will probably make way for Andriy Lunin between the sticks, while Eden Hazard will most likely be given the chance to play ahead of Karim Benzema.
Basque full-back Álvaro Odriozola is expected to be given the nod ahead of Ferland Mendy at right-back. Eduardo Camavinga will more than likely join compatriot Aurélien Tchouaméni in midfield.
Predicted Real Madrid lineup against Cacereño
AS predict that Ancelotti will field the following starting XI against Cacereño: Andriy Lunin – Lucas Vázquez, Éder Militão, Nacho Fernández, Álvaro Odriozola – Dani Ceballos, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Eduardo Camavinga – Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm CET.
