Real Madrid Vs Bayern Munich, Champions League 2014: Confirmed Lineups

Denis Doyle

Bale stays on the bench and Cristiano starts

Big surprise on Real's lineup. Gareth Bale stays on the bench with that virus, but Cristiano Ronaldo starts. Isco will be on Bale's spot.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao, Alonso, Modric, Di Maria, Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Bayern Starting XI: Neuer, Rafinha, Boateng, Dante, Alaba, Schwensteiger, Lahm, Kroos, Robben, Ribery, Mandzukic

Huge blow for Real Madrid to lose the hero of the Copa del Rey title. Still, he could come off the bench to harm Bayern's tired legs with counterattacks. And good news to see Cristiano Ronaldo on the lineup after those few weeks in which he was injured. Other than that, both lineups were kind of predictable, and this will be just another important night for Isco, who will likely play on the right wing and will be crucial for Real's hopes of keeping the ball. It will be very important to keep a clean sheet, so the 11 players better work really hard on defense.
