Real Madrid Vs Al-Saad, Bernabéu Trophy: Match Thread

Raúl will finally have his testimonial this Thursday. Talk about the game here.

Christof Koepsel

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Arbeloa, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kaka', Ronaldo, Di María and Raúl.

Al-Saad Starting XI: TBC

Raúl left the club three years ago after spending 16 seasons with Real Madrid's first team. Then he went to play for Schalke 04 and two years later he signed for Al-Saad. He never got a chance to play a testimonial game to thank him for his 16 seasons with the club, but a full Bernabéu will wait for him this Thursday.

Some fans complaint about his attitude as a captain, and it's true that Raúl could have been a better player and teammate in his latest years with the club, but he was an unforgettable player that many Real Madrid fans will remember. His goal against Valencia in the 8th Champions League is one of his greatest moments as a Real Madrid player. If someone deserves a testimonial match, that's Raúl.

Raúl will play one half for each teams. Cristiano Ronaldo will let him wear Real's number 7.
