Champions League: Borussia Dortmund Vs Real Madrid: Official Lineups

Cristiano Ronaldo starts the game on the bench and Illarramendi starts.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlo Ancelotti have been wise and the Portuguese player will stay on the bench. Illarramendi will start in the midfield, so Angel Di Maria will be back on the right wing.

Alonso and Modric are also starting the game, and so are Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos and Coentrao. It will not be easy for Borussia Dortmund to overcome that 3-0 deficit. But they will surely try.

Borussia Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Friedrich, Hummels, Durm, Jojic, Kirch, Grosskreutz, Mkhitaryan, Reus, Lewandowski.

Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao, Alonso, Modric, Illarramendi, Bale, Di Maria, Benzema.

It will be very important for Real Madrid to score first in order to deactivate the atmosphere. The German fans are really intense and Ancelotti and his men can't afford to give them hope. To cover Lewandowski well will also be a priority because the Polish striker is a big threat, as he showed last season.
