Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane takes his side to the Estadio Gran Canaria to play Las Palmas in LaLiga on Saturday (20:45 CEST) without a trio of first-team regulars.

Casemiro crocked

Real announced on Thursday that midfielder Casemiro - who missed the midweek draw with Villarreal after coming off injured against Espanyol three days earlier - has a fractured fibula, meaning he faces one to two months out.

Marcelo (centre) comes off injured against Villarreal.

Marcelo out with calf strain

On Friday, Los Blancos then confirmed that Marcelo picked up a grade 2 calf strain in the stalemate with the Submarino Amarillo, with the Brazilian left-back not expected to return until after the October international break.

Pepe struggling with knee problem

And the pair are joined on the sidelines by defender Pepe, who sat out the Villarreal clash with a bruised knee and, having failed to recover sufficiently from the issue, on Friday again trained away from the group.
