Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor, Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Kroos, Isco, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
FC Basel Starting XI: Vaclik; Degen, Schär, Suchy, Safari; Elneny, F.Frei, Zuffi; Gonzalez, Embolo, Gashi.
Ancelotti decides to give his fullbacks some rest, and Keylor Navas starts the game as well. Isco and Kroos have another good opportunity to gel that midfield duo that will likely get a lot of minutes this season given Modric's injury. It will also be interesting to see how Varane performs alongside Sergio Ramos, as he will compete for a starting role soon.
