While Barcelona have the chance to win the league against Espanyol this weekend, Real Madrid will play hosts to Getafe. With their eyes set on the Manchester City game in midweek, Carlo Ancelotti is set to rotate his team heavily.

As part of the plan, he has dropped a few players, too. Karim Benzema and Rodrygo are not part of the squad list. The duo picked up knocks against Man City and have been left to rest with the hope of recovering them in time for the second leg.

Vinicius Jr, however, is part of the four-man attacking list, that also includes Eden Hazard, Mariano Diaz, and Marco Asensio. The Brazilian may not start the game, but Ancelotti has confirmed that he will play.

David Alaba also suffered some discomfort against City in the UCL, and will not be part of the hosting group for this Madrid derby. Daniel Carvajal is also missing, but Ancelotti did not provide any update on his situation during the pre-game press conference.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
