Madrid looking to build momentum against Bilbao

The French coach has called up all the players he had available. Casemiro, currently on a cumulative yellow card suspension, is missing along with the injured Odegaard, Hazard, Jovic and Mariano. It’s likely that Zidane will name the same side that defeated Atlético Madrid on Saturday with only the Brazilian needing to be replaced.
