Real Madrid Vs Basel, Champions League 2014-2015: CONFIRMED lineups

Real Madrid begin the quest for the Undécima Champions League against FC Basel.

Clive Brunskill

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casillas, Nacho, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

FC Basel Starting XI: Vaclik, Samuel, Schar, Suchy, Safari, Zuffi, Frei, Elneny, Xhaka, Streller, Gonzalez.

No surprises. Only Nacho and Marcelo get a chance to start in Arbeloa and Coentrao's spots. Ancelotti keeps leaving Illarra and Isco on the bench and trusting Kroos, Modric and James. Casillas has a good opportunity to redeem himself and the BBC start upfront. This is a must win game for Real Madrid, without a doubt.
