Following their disappointing loss to Atletico Madrid in El Madrileno, Real Madrid will be eager to get back on track when they host Las Palmas at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Matchday 7.
While Los Blancos had a lackluster performance in the Madrid derby, they are considered strong favorites to win in front of their home fans. Winger Vinicius Junior is expected to recover in time to face Las Palmas, but Daniel Carvajal, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois remain sidelined. Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is pushing for a spot in the starting lineup.
Meanwhile, the visitors, Las Palmas, secured a late victory against Granada at home thanks to Kirian’s late goal, but they face a tough challenge in Madrid. Key defender Mika Marmol is suspended for the match, which is a significant loss for the visiting team. Additionally, several players, including Benito Ramirez, Alberto Moleiro, Fabio Gonzalez, and Machin Perez, are sidelined with injuries. Given the circumstances, Real Madrid is the clear favorite, and they have a good chance of securing a victory.
