Real Madrid confirmed the Starting XI who will play against Sporting Gijón at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Sporting Starting XI XI: Cuéllar; Lora, Luis, Meré, Isma, Sergio, Cases, Jony, Halilovic, Á Menéndez and Guerrero.

Los Blancos have enough offensive firepower to dismantle Sporting Gijón's defense even though Abelardo's side managed to get a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid in the first match of the season. Gareth Bale is on fire lately and this certainly looks like another game in which he could leave his mark and keep his scoring streak alive.

Zidane once again has decided to start Isco in the midfield, keeping James on the bench. It seems clear that Isco will be an important player for Zidane and that James will have to work really hard to get the minutes he wants in this squad. Keep an eye on this battle for the spot.
