Malaga vs Real Madrid Preview

Roma's players celebrate after eliminating Barcelona in the Champions League

Real Madrid return to domestic action on Sunday as they travel to La Liga's bottom side Malaga.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is furious with the continuing fallout from his side's Champions League quarter-final victory over Juventus, suggesting that people are annoyed at the club's phenomenal success.

The Spain global seems to have usurped Bale in Zinedine Zidane's preferred XI, but Isco's future at Madrid has not always appeared set in stone.

Madrid moved above Valencia into third place in the table after Isco scored a free-kick and set up Casemiro against his old club.

Team sheets are in! It's a 50/50. Bayern are better this year, they're competing really well. Los Blancos are now in fourth place in the league and know that a victory will see them leap-frog Valencia into third place.

Málaga have only won one of their 33 meetings vs Real Madrid in La Liga (D8 L24), 3-2 at La Rosaleda in December 2012. "It's going to be hard, but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it". "I've seen them (Malaga) and their position is surprising".

UEFA have confirmed Sergio Ramos will not face any match ban after he watched Real Madrid's Champions League clash from the Santiago Bernabeu tunnel, despite being suspended. Upfront, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are expected to be the strike partners, with Cristiano Ronaldo likely to be omitted from the matchday squad altogether, as has been the case of late against lowly opposition. We did very well and we're in the semi-finals.' Real are fourth in the Liga standings and could be 18 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona by the time they play against Malaga.
