NOTE: We have made changes to our team after the lineups were announced
OUT: F Valverde,R Goes
IN: Isco, Toni Kroos
They might be unbeaten in 9 matches in La Liga 2019-20, but with two draws in their foregone encounters, Real Madrid have lost massive ground in their pursuit for the glistening trophy. From sitting on akin points as Barcelona to now finding themselves two points behind the league leaders, Real Madrid will be looking to break free of the their ordeal come today.
Framing their previous two outings in the league with the most recent being a 0-0 shut down against Athletic Bilbao, as Real Madrid make an advent into 2020, anything else than a win in their first encounter of the new year would be a damaging result for them. And they won’t have things straightforward for them with the side coming off against an extremely resilience and resolute Granada side.
Although they were defeated 1-0 by Villarreal the last time around, Granada will be hardly deterred when they descend on today’s encounter. For three years running now, the side have massively punched above their weight, something which is emoted by the sixth spot they occupy at the moment with an impressive 30 points to their name.
GEF vs RM Dream11 Prediction
Real Madrid will find it extremely difficult to scrape through a win on the day with Granada revered for their fight and character. However, Real Madrid have attacking firepower in abundance, something which should just about guide them to the three points on the day.
Markel Bargara is the only injury concern for the home side with the player set to miss this one.
James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio are all struggling with their injury plights at the moment and will continue to be out of action for Real Madrid today.

Goal-Keepers for GEF vs RM Dream11
A major reason for Getafe thriving so much this season has been down to their will and valour in defence. With a mere 17 goals let in all season, the side have emerged as a stern and sound defensive unit, one which has stood firm infront of the most stringent of attacks.
And their shut stopper, David Soria has played a pivotal role for his side in making them such a tenacious defence to see us indulge in his services for the day.
Defenders for GEF vs RM Dream11
In a season where Real Madrid have been bereft of attacking ideas all across the season, the side have thrusted their focus to shut down sides from scoring past them. And their unnerving efforts have paid off as well for the side to see them emerge as the meanest and most stringent defence in the league with a mere 12 goals let in 18 encounters.
And with two cleansheets on the bounce in their most recent outings, the side look extremely likely to pull off a cleansheet to ther name today as well. It sees us move in with an entire trivalent from the side, one which begins with Raphael Varane with the CB set to play a solid role for his side in the absence of Sergio Ramos.
He’s going to be accompanied by Ferland Mendy and Dani Carvajal, two names more than capable of bombarding down the park and setting the field alight with their affinity to come up with either a goal or assist in between them.
Mid-fielders for GEF vs RM Dream11
It’s been a topsy-turvy season for Gareth Bale at the club this time around with it being apparent that there’s an evident right between him and the club. However, despite spat, the player has been a regular feature of his side in their foregone encounters in a bid to compensate for the void left by Hazard.
And he’s managed to come up with the two goals as well to see us go in with him for the day along with Federico Valverde who has emerged as a mainstay of his side this term. Toni Kroos was another consideration but he’s registered just the one goal and assist all season to see us leave him out along with Casemiro, another player who has endured a drab season.
Elsewhere, from the opposition we are getting in Mauro Arambarri and Nemanja Maksimovic, two names who have held for the side in their defensive sorties.
Strikers for GEF vs RM Dream11
Real Madrid’s lading goal scorer with the 12 goals to his name, Karim Benzema becomes the first player to be heralded into our Dream 11 setup for the day. He’s accompanied by Rodrygo Goes with the player edging out Vinicius owing to his ability to torch his way down the park and play a part in his side’s corners and freekicks as well.
Elsewhere, with 5 goals to his name, Jaime Mata comes into our side from the opposition as the lone player over here. The three goals for him in the league made Jorge Molina a consideration as well but Mata’s consistency and more versatile skill set saw him earn a place in our side.
Captain and vice-captain
Mendy will captain our side out for the day while Benzema is our vice-captain.
