Eden Hazard returns to the squad after a month out and will be keen to finally deliver his best self to Los Blancos after so many false dawns.
No other major changes are expected given that Zidane seems to have realised the importance of continuity in maintaining good form. Isco and Vinicius Junior could have been in line to start but are expected to begin on the bench.
Madrid are on a run of five victories in all competitions (four in the league) and have gone from a potential crisis to looking like serious title contenders one again.
They face no easy task in Diego Martinez‘s Granada, however. No longer the surprise package of last season, the Andalusians have established themselves as a real force.
