Raphäel Varane and Xabi Alonso will be back on Real Madrid's starting lineup. Both recently recovered players will play against the Italian champions after missing 5 months of action. While Varane made his return a month ago and even had the chance of playing El Clásico against Barcelona, Xabi Alonso has only played 73 minutes in this 2013-2014 season.

Marcelo and Khedira will also start the match, considering that Coentrao is out with an ankle sprain and the German midfielder earned some rest against Rayo Vallecano.

Ancelotti will probably start this 11 men:

Real Madrid Projected Starting XI: Casillas, Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Alonso, Khedira, Modric, Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema

Juventus Projected Starting XI: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Ogbonna, Cáceres, Asamoah, Pirlo, Pogba, Marchisio, Vidal, Tévez
