Real Madrid secured a win against Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday to regain their 12-point lead at the top of La Liga.
The coach has made four changes since the Champions League mid-week win over Chelsea, resting Dani Carvajal, Ferland Mendy, Tony Cruz and Luka Modric at a glance in the second leg of the quarter-finals.
Stamford Bridge hat-trick hero Karim Benzema was in the line-up and wrapped the ball in the net four minutes after a long pass from David Alabar, only to see the flag go up for offside.

The stalemate broke in the 38th minute when Vinicius Jr. headed Casimiro to a distant post with a delightful cross from outside his right foot. Shortly after the break, the hosts knocked on another door, and Valvarde again moved closer to the range with a free-kick.
But Madrid had to wait until the 68th minute when Vazquez played a neat one-two with Rodrigo on the right and threw the ball into the far corner of the net with his left foot.
Viewers show a brief glimpse of the fight towards the end, with Anas Unal hitting the post with an effort in the 90th minute, but it was a small scare for the league leaders.
