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.
