Eden Hazard is back in the Real Madrid squad for the first time this season but the smart money is that the Belgian will be on the bench for much, if not all, of the encounter. Instead, Luka Jovic, Rodrygo and Vinicius are the viable options to flank Karim Benzema up front.
Toni Kroos is out with a hip problem after the weekends win at Betis and that could leave space for Martin Odegaard to see some action unless the Madrid boss sticks with something more traditional from Casemiro, Isco, Modric, Valverde et al.
Marcelo may well return at left back while Marco Asensio, Eder Militao and Mariano are all sidelined through injury.Real Madrid vs Valladolid kicks off at 8.30pm BST tonight. Read on to find out how to watch a free Real Madrid vs Valladolid live stream other games on LaLigaTV wherever you are.

Hazard, who returned to training later than his team mates due to fitness troubles, had been included in the squad for the home game with Valladolid but Madrid issued a medical report on Wednesday saying he had injured a muscle in his right leg.
The report did not say how long Hazard would be out for, although Spanish newspaper Marca reported he would be unable to play for between three and four weeks.Hazard is therefore expected to also miss Sundays game at Levante as well as Belgiums friendly with the Ivory Coast plus their Nations League fixtures against England and Iceland.
The Belgian forward joined Real Madrid from Chelsea last year for a jointclub record fee of 100 million euros his impact in Spain has been minimal due to two serious ankle injuries, leading him to make only 14 league starts last season and score only one goal.
The big news for the champions is that star attacker Eden Hazard is back in the squad after missing the first two matches of the season. Along with Hazard, Marco Asensio also makes a return but Toni Kroos is out with an injury. Mariano Diaz and Eder Militao also remain unavailable for selection for Zidane.
Having lined his team up in a 4312 formation in the last game, the manager might revert to a 433 setup when Valladolid come visiting this week. In goal, there is no looking past last season’s Zamora Trophy winner Thibaut Courtois for the Merengues.
Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy should continue as the fullbacks even though Marcelo has recovered from a minor injury issue. Raphael Varane ought to pair up alongside captain Sergio Ramos at the heart of the Real Madrid defence.
There is no looking past Casemiro in the holding midfield role on Wednesday night. He will have support from Federico Valverde, who scored in the last game against Real Betis. Luka Modric could be in line to return to the starting XI, with Martin Odegaard likely to drop to the bench after starting two games in a row.
Even though Hazard and Asensio are back in contention, it is unlikely that the duo will start on Wednesday night. Instead, it will be Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes who occupy the wide areas, with Karim Benzema spearheading the Real Madrid attack.
Sergio will be unable to call upon the services of Kiko Olivas, Javi Moyano, Joaquin Fernandez and Ruben Alcaraz, all of whom are out injured. Goalkeeper Jordi Masip will also miss out as he recovers from the coronavirus. The visitors are expected to set up in a 4231 formation on Wednesday, ditching the 442 that the manager deployed in the previous game.
Zinedine Zidane’s men kicked off the new campaign with a goalless draw against Real Sociedad but followed up with a 32 win away to Real Betis. Sergio Ramos scored a winning penalty in the last 10 minutes to ensure the three points returned to the capital.
Real Valladolid, however, are still searching for their first win, having drawn two and suffered defeat in their opening three matches. Hovering just outside the relegation zone, the White and Violets, who boast Brazil legend Ronaldo as their president and primary owner, will be desperate to clinch a first win.
In goal, 34yearold Roberto ought to continue in Masip’s absence. Luis Perez and Nacho Martinez should retain their places as the fullbacks on the right and left sides, with Bruno Gonzalez and former Real Madrid man Javi Sanchez starting at the heart of the Valladolid backline.
Michel, who did not feature in the last game against Celta Vigo, should return to the side in the midfield double pivot. Partnering him against Real Madrid ought to be Kike Perez, although Fede San Emeterio is also an option at the manager’s disposal.
