With his team heavy favorites and a road game against Malaga looming in Copa Del Rey, Jose Mourinho has chosen an interesting team to face Granada. Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema both start, presumably in a two-striker formation. Lassana Diarra will play right back, while youngster Raphael Varane gets a start. Granada are packing the midfield, though their wingers are dangerous. It'll be a tough task for them to get a result at the Bernabeu. Here are the lineups.
Real Madrid Lineup (4-2-2-2): Casillas; Marcelo, Ramos, Varane, Diarra; Alonso, Khedira; Ronaldo, Özil; Benzema, Higuain
Granada Lineup (4-5-1): Roberto; Nyom, Iñigo López, Diakhate, Siquiera; Mikel Rico, Yebda, Uche, Martin, Benitez; Ighalo
Kickoff is at 2:00 p.m. ET, 8:00 p.m. local time. You can catch the game on GolTV in both the USA and Canada, and it's on Sky Sports in the UK.
