Line-ups: Madrid-La Real

Real Madrid rest Gareth Bale and Casemiro for tonight's clash with Real Sociedad, who are without top goalscorer Willian Jose.

Bale is seemingly not ready to play two games in a week yet and Casemiro is given a well-earned break as Madrid kick off their Champions League last-16 tie with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday

Consequently, Zinedine Zidane lines his team up in a 4-4-2 formation, with Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio out wide and Cristiano Ronaldo partnering Karim Benzema up top.

As for La Real, former Southampton striker Juanmi is entrusted with replacing the injured Willian Jose at the tip of their attacking trident.

Los Blancos have a dominant record against the Basques, winning 14 of their previous 18 meetings, among them a 3-0 victory at Anoeta back in September.
