Will Isco and James find themselves back in the same XI?


Cristiano Ronaldo will be rested, while Alvaro Morata and Gareth Bale miss out through suspension, so there is a distinct possibility Isco and James Rodriguez will find themselves back in the same XI against Eibar at Estadio Ipurua on Saturday.
The French coach has usually chosen one or the other, but on certain occasions has ventured for both at the same time if he seeks to emphasise their possession game.
Who will feature on both of Benzema's flanks remains unclear, as Zidane will most likely still stick with his 4-3-3.
Only once have the Spanish and Colombian playmaker played together in the same starting XI in LaLiga, in a match that came against Deportivo.
Nonetheless, they did join forces twice against Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey.
Even looking back to previous seasons, the two have only played together in seven matches for a total of 230 minutes.
In Zidane's eyes, both No. 10s play a similar function, like to occupy the same spaces, play the same type of balls, and are creative playmakers that are interchangeable.
Still, circumstances could force Zidane's hand, although he could always choose only one of them and opt for the trusty Lucas Vazquez or the somewhat sidelined Marco Asensio instead.
