7 & # 39; Portu comes in after Odriozola and plays inside, but Stuani can't stop it from going out for a goal kick. Another decent attack from Girona though.

6 & # 39; Handball by Vazquez and Girona wins it back. Real Madrid puts them under any kind of pressure, but Bono plays out to avoid Benzema's pressure.

3 & # 39; Courtois with a busted nose right now and they are trying to stop the bleeding.

2 & # 39; Stuani with a golden chance. Courtois saves and hits the ground damaged. Stuani got the landing page of Varane, and was offside, but the game continued. Ball met Courtois on his head and he received treatment.

1 & # 39; We're heading for a very, very sunny Santiago Bernabéu.

Solari and Eusebio with a nice hug on the touchline.

Team in the tunnel and we are almost ready to go!

The message is that they are keen to protect Vinicius. And he finally gets rest. There is no doubt about his growing importance now and it will be very interesting to see how Real Madrid goes without him.

They have not won since November. Since then, they have taken four points from ten matches.

Asensio's first start in two months since the match against Rayo Vallecano at Bernabéu.

Marcelo will have his work cut out for him today with Pedro Porro to the right of Girona. The 19-year-old is a bundle of energy and in Eusebio's system he gets the freedom to attack at will!

Sergio Ramos and Nacho make a ban if they get another yellow card. That means a booking today and they will miss Levante and clear their slate for the Barcelona game in LaLiga after that! Will they force a card today?

Girona XI: Bono, Ramalho, Granell, Alcala, Porro, Pere Pons, Carnero, Juanpe, Portu, Stuani, Douglas Luiz.

Marco Asensio sent Solari an early reminder with his performance against Ajax. He starts today!

Solari was expected to call the changes today and he is kind of. Two changes on the back with Marcelo and Odriozola in for Carvajal and Reguilon while Ceballos replaces suspended Modric and Asensio comes in for Vinicius.

Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Odriozola, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Ceballos; Lucas Vázquez, Benzema, Asensio.

Hello and welcome to live online coverage of Real Madrid vs Girona from Bernabéu with kick-off coming at 12:00 CET.
