Celta de Vigo Vs Real Madrid, Liga BBVA 2013-2014: Official Lineups

Khedira starts again, and Ancelotti shows no trust on Illarra.

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Celta Vigo Starting XI: Álvarez, Aurtenetxe, López, Fontás, Jonny, Rafinha, Oubiña, Krohn-Dehli, Nolito, Bermejo, Orellana

Real Madrid Starting XI: Diego López, Arbeloa, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Alonso, Casemiro, Modric, Isco, Khedira, Morata

If some of you still thought that Ancelotti was going to start Illarramendi in the Champions League Final, take a look at this lineup. Ancelotti starts Casemiro, Khedira, Modric and Alonso in what will be an obvious 4-4-2 with Isco playing behind the striker.

It will be very hard for Illarramendi to get that confidence back after this, and considering all that has happened, one could question his future in the club. Ancelotti has not handled this situation properly and Real's lack of a pure DM in Lisbon could cost the team. This was a perfect game for Illarra to get some minutes and confidence back but Carlo has decided otherwise in a very strange decision. Let's see what happens with him.
