Coaches Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will start the game. That means Jesé Rodríguez will stay on the bench. Ángel Di María and Luka Modric should also start the game in the midfield, escorted by Xabi Alonso. Ancelotti won't rotate on defense, so Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos and Marcelo should be ahead of Iker Casillas' goal.

For Schalke, Dutch striker Huntelaar has recovered from his injury and will try to end Casillas' clean-sheet streak. Playmaker Julian Draxler is still not at 100% but will likely face Álvaro Arbeloa on Schalke's left wing.
