With James Rodríguez, Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale all missing the game, Carlo Ancelotti will rotate some of his starters ahead of Tuesday's crucial Champions League match against Atlético.

Real Madrid XI: Keylor, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Illarramendi, Modric, Isco, Jesé, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema.

Eibar XI: Irureta, Lillo, Añibarro, Navas, Vilá, Fernández, García, Capa, Arruabarrena, Lara, Sal.

Keylor Navas will be defending Real Madrid's goal, while Nacho could give Marcelo rest on the left wing. Pepe has been included in the team's list and could feature some minutes too, although Varane will likely be the starter alongside Ramos.

Ancelotti announced that Illarramendi and Jesé have "very good chances of starting", meaning that these two players will be Kroos and Bale's replacements. Isco will also make his return to the starting lineup to play in James' spot, with Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo playing upfront and trying to gain some more momentum before Tuesday's decisive match.
