Last challenge for Real Madrid before heading back to Europe to play in the Audi Cup and also in Norway. Los Blancos will play against a weakened AC Milan side in Shanghai, trying to collect 3 wins out of 4 games played so far under Rafa Benítez.
The coach explained that Benzema and Modric should be recovered and ready enough to feature after missing the match against Inter, so those two players will likely come back in the rotation. If that happens, expect Casemiro and Jesé, who started last Monday, to sit on the bench and wait for their chance during the second half.
Diego López will be defending Milan's goal, and his former teammates will surely be looking forward to score some goals. Especially Gareth Bale, who has not written his name in the score sheet this pre-season. James should also get some more minutes after this week of training and conditioning.
