Fàbio Coentrao Will Start Against Bayern Munich

Ancelotti announced that the Portuguese defender will be on the starting XI

Fàbio Coentrao, who is always in the shadows because of that 30M€ transfer fee José Mourinho decided to pay in order to sign him, was excellent against FC Barcelona. And he will have the chance to repeat that great performance against Bayern Munich, according to Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Marcelo is not at 100% because he started training with the team a few days ago, so Fàbio Coentrao will be the one starting against Bayern Munich.

Coentrao will be facing Arjen Robben on Real's left wing, and he will likely need some help against the Dutch winger to succeed. But he also did a good job against him two seasons ago. Ancelotti expects his team to play as a whole, a compact and solid squad. And that's where Coentrao fits right in.

Furthermore, Marcelo could be used as an offensive spark off the bench if things aren't going well for Ancelotti's Real Madrid.
