A few surprises in Real Madrid's lineup: Carlo Ancelotti decided to give some of our important players a rest before next Tuesday's crucial match against Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Diego López; Nacho, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Illarramendi, Modric, Isco; Di María, Morata, Ronaldo.

Osasuna Starting XI: Andrés Fernández; Damiá, Flaño, Arribas, Joan Oriol; Cejudo, Raoul Loé, Puñal, Armenteros, De las Cuevas; Oriol Riera.

As it was confirmed in yesterday's press conference, Ronaldo will be a starter in order to help him to obtain an optimal condition. Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Coentrao, Casemiro, Alonso and Benzema will sit on the bench and may have some minutes to play in the second half, while Gareth Bale, probably still not fully recovered from his flu, will not take part in tonight's clash. However, Carletto's choice seems competitive enough to beat Osasuna and keep the few options we still have to win the league.
