Line-ups: Madrid-Getafe

The big boys are back for Real Madrid as they look to put their Copa del Rey expulsion behind them when they take on Getafe in La Liga this afternoon.

Rafa Benitez will be hoping for a big performance from his players as a hostile atmosphere awaits them at the Santiago Bernabeu, and his seven changes start in goal, where Keylor Navas comes in for Kiko Casilla.

In defence, Lucas Vazquez is stationed as an emergency right-back to make up for Marcelo’s absence, with Danilo on the left, while Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and top goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo are all included.

Denis Cheryshev is also named on the substitutes’ bench after his controversial appearance against Cadiz on Wednesday.

Centre-back Alexis Ruano, meanwhile, is Getafe’s only survivor from the midweek Copa defeat to Rayo Vallecano.
