Real Madrid will be aiming to keep up the pressure on league leaders Girona when they lock horns with UD Las Palmas away at Gran Canaria tomorrow.

Heading into the match, manager Carlo Ancelotti has a near full-strength squad at his disposal, with Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, and David Alaba being the only absentees due to injury while Jude Bellingham is out through suspension.

The England international picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the last La Liga clash against UD Almeria and has earned an automatic one-match ban as a result.

Eduardo Camavinga at risk of suspension

Speaking of suspension, Bellingham’s fellow midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is staring at the risk of getting banned for Real Madrid’s La Liga clash against Getafe next week.

The French international, who has recently returned from an injury layoff, is on four yellow cards in the league at this point.

And another booking in tomorrow’s match against Las Palmas would mean an automatic suspension for a game due to accumulation of cards.

With Real Madrid staring at a crucial run of fixtures that could make or break their title challenge, having all players available for selection becomes crucial.

As such, Camavinga will have to be careful not to earn himself a booking and a subsequent suspension when he steps onto the pitch tomorrow against Las Palmas.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
