Real Madrid will be in confident mood after thrashing Deportivo by 5 goals in Zidane’s first match incharge of Real Madrid. Gareth Bale is showing signs of why Madrid paid record breaking fee two years ago scoring hattricks in back to back games and he will be the key man again against Sporting Gijon. Real Madrid has only lost once in their last 27 league games and that defeat came in the hands of Barcelona and combine that with Real Madrid’s recent goalscoring form of 30 goals in last 5 home matches will scare everything out of Gijon who has little chance of stopping Real Madrid at Bernabue.
Team News & Lineups: As far as the team news is concerned there are no injury worries but Zidane might rotate the starting lineup with James Rodrigues coming in for Isco while Denilo playing at rightback in place of Dani Carvajal.
Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale should keep their placing in attacking roles while Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are set to continue in the central midfield.
Sporting Gijon will be missing couple of key players in Sergio Alvarez and Bernardo Espinosa. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Sunday.
