Real Madrid are coming after a bad start of 2015, with two defeats after to games. The galactics ended their impressive run with 22 wins in a row, but they are still leading the table in Spain, with 39 points, one more than Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. What is more important is that Real Madrid have a match in hand. You probably know that Modric is still injured, while Daniel Carvajal will miss the game too, due to a suspension.
