After falling to a crushing defeat in Sunday's Madrid derby, Real Madrid will hope to respond when they host Las Palmas on Wednesday.

Vinicius Junior has recovered from a hamstring injury but his planned return in the derby was delayed by a surprise illness, but the Brazilian is believed to be healthy once again and could be thrown in from the start.

Dani Carvajal has been out with a muscle injury and may not return for this one, instead remaining on the sidelines alongside Arda Guler, who is back in training but unlikely to be risked. Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao remain out.

Real Madrid vs Las Palmas score prediction

Las Palmas' matches this season have all been low-scoring affairs. The league newcomers have conceded just four goals in six games, having kept a clean sheet against Real Sociedad and held Girona and Valencia to one goal each.

The visitors will absolutely take a 0-0 here and will focus all their efforts on frustrating their star-studded opponents, so the pressure is all on Madrid to be more efficient in front of goal than they were at the weekend.

Don't expect a free-flowing affair, but Madrid should just about edge this.

Prediction: Real Madrid 1-0 Las Palmas
