CONFIRMED: Real Madrid line-up v Elche – Javier Hernandez and Karim Benzema on bench!

Here is how Real Madrid will line up against Elche in their La Liga clash tonight, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, while both Javier Hernandez and Karim Benzema are on the substitutes' bench.

Real Madrid will be looking to continue their recent run of good form with victory over Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga tonight.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will head into tonight’s match on the back of a 8-2 hammering of Deportivo La Coruna away from home on Saturday.

The Madrid attackers were in excellent form in that match, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick and Gareth Bale and Javier Hernandez bagging a brace each.

Los Blancos will be keen on a similar performance and result against one of the Spanish top flight’s weakest teams (on paper) and continue to maintain their winning run.

Elche will certainly be the underdogs tonight, although their start to the 2014-15 La Liga campaign has been decent. Fran Escriba’s side are currently 13th in the league table with four points from as many matches. A point in Madrid tonight will be a bonus.
