Real Madrid Vs Juventus, UEFA Champions League 2013-2014: Projected Lineups

Denis Doyle

Ancelotti could make some changes on Real's lineup because of Saturday's Clásico.

There are a lot of questions to be answered about Real Madrid's Starting XI against Juventus. Di María should get some rest before Saturday's game against Barcelona, so Gareth Bale could start against Juve. Modric could also start on the bench again in order to get ready for El Clásico, and that would mean another start for Isco. The same happens with Benzema. He's recovered from the small injury he had, but if he's to play at Barcelona, Morata will surely start against Juventus.

So this is what Ancelotti might want to deploy:

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Illarramendi, Khedira, Isco, Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Morata.

On Juventus' side, it all depends on what kind of midfield Conte will play with. He has problems with his strikers, so he might want to start Tévez alone on the offensive line and start Pogba alongside Pirlo, Marchisio and Vidal in order to protect his italian playmaker better. Vidal is questionable for Juventus' situation in the Champions League is not good, so the Chilean midfielder will likely get the start.

Juventus Starting XI: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonnucci, Chiellini, Isla, Pirlo, Asamoah, Vidal, Pogba, Marchisio, Tévez.
