Zinedine Zidane's men visit the Spanish top flight's bottom side just a few days after Cristiano Ronaldo's injury time penalty sealed their place in the last-four of the Champions League at Juventus' expense.
The capital club may be focusing on winning a third consecutive European crown this season, but they will be desperate to ensure they have a strong finish to their domestic duties.

Betting & Match Odds
Real Madrid are 3/10 favourites to win the match with dabblebet, while Malaga come in at 9/1 and a draw is available at 9/2.
With 15 points separating them from leaders Barcelona, Real Madrid can already consider their chances of winning La Liga over, but the Santiago Bernabeu side will not be happy with a fourth place finish.
However, while Malaga are 14 points from safety in the Spanish top-flight and have won just one game in 2018, they have had a slight upturn in form recently, having drawn with Celta Vigo and beaten Villarreal.
After fighting back to get beyond Juventus in midweek and with an eye on their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich, a win at La Rosaleda should be a simple ask for Cristiano Ronaldo & Co.
