Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Gareth Bale will all miss Real Madrid's trip to Malaga on Sunday evening with the quartet left out of Zinedine Zidane's travelling contingent as they head to the Costa del Sol.

Although, the attacker only lasted 45 minutes during Real Madrid's dramatic Champions League showdown with Juventus in midweek and Zidane could have Athletic Club's LaLiga visit on Wednesday evening in mind.

Diego Rolan scored with the last touch of the match to halve the deficit but defeat leaves Malaga on the verge of relegation as they sit 14 points adrift of safety with six matches remaining - their fate will be sealed if they lose to 17th-placed Levante on Thursday.

The midfielder impressed for Real in victory at Malaga yesterday, scoring against his former club for the win.

The 33-year-old was set up by a teammate in training as he threw his body to unleash a side-volley to score a fantastic goal.

Real Madrid were awarded a controversial penalty by referee Michael Oliver in the third minute of regulation time as Gianluigi Buffon was sent off in the process.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas 7, Dani Carvajal 7, Jesus Vallejo 7, Sergio Ramos 7, Theo Hernandez 6, Casemiro 6, Isco 8, Mateo Kovacic 7, Lucas Vasquez 6, Marco Asensio 5, Karim Benzema 5.
