Real Madrid published their starting XI for the Champions League match against Sporting Portugal.

Sporting Portugal Starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Rui Patricio, Joao Pereira, Coates, Semedo, Zeegelar, Martins, Carvalho, Silva, Ruiz, Cesar, Dost.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Modric, Kovacic, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo, Lucas Vazquez.

It will be extremely important for Real Madrid to control the tempo of the game, contrary to what happened when Sporting visited the Bernabeu. The Portuguese side are a quality team capable of creating good scoring chances, but Madrid have more than enough tools to dismantle them and dominate the game if they play with composure. Zidane and his men must keep their momentum going after their 0-3 win against Atletico.
