Line-ups: Real Madrid-Elche

With Cristiano Ronaldo out suspended, Karim Benzema, Jese and Gareth Bale will lead the line for Real Madrid against Elche.

The Portugal international will serve the last of his three match ban this afternoon, so the same front-three that performed so well against Getafe last weekend take their places.

In midfield, Luka Modric is suspended so Asier Illarramendi comes in, whilst Raphael Varane plays in the centre of defence in place of Sergio Ramos

The promoted side meanwhile, go with a 4-2-3-1, lead by Coro.

Real Madrid: Diego Lopez; Arbeloa, Pepe, Varane, Carvajal; Illarra, Di Maria, Xabi Alonso; Jese, Bale, Benzema
