Kroos and James miss Las Palmas clash

The Spanish giants will be without the German midfielder and Colombia international for their must-win clash on Sunday, while Karim Benzema is also set to miss out.
James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Danilo have all been left out of Real Madrid's squad for Sunday's clash with Las Palmas.

Head coach Zinedine Zidane has opted to rest the trio for the long trip to Gran Canaria to face Quique Setien's side.

France international striker Karim Benzema also misses out as he continues his recovery from injury.

Borja Mayoral, Nacho Fernandez and Alvaro Arbeloa all return to the matchday squad for a game which Madrid must win to keep pressure on rival Atletico Madrid in second place.

Real currently lies four points behind Atletico, and 15 behind leader Barcelona, which has not lost any of its previous 10 games in La Liga.
