Real Madrid stick with Isco in a 4-3-1-2 at Malaga as Marlon starts for Barcelona against Eibar in tonight’s La Liga title-deciders.
Zinedine Zidane names an unchanged side from the one that beat Celta Vigo 4-1 midweek, with Gareth Bale and Dani Carvajal still absent.
That means Isco is back on his former stomping ground, playing in the hole behind Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Malaga – coached by Madrid legend Michel Gonzalez – have won six of their last eight games and are spearheaded in attack by former Barca striker Sandro Ramirez.
The Blaugrana, meanwhile, are without Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano, so Marlon continues alongside Samuel Umtiti in central defence.
At least a draw will be enough for Madrid to lift their first title in five years, while Barca can yet rain on their arch-rivals’ parade if they beat Eibar and Los Blancos lose to Malaga.
