Real Madrid will play against Club America de Meximo in the FIFA Club World Cup Semifinals hoping to earn a spot in the Final and face Kashima Antlers, who surprisingly enough managed to beat Atletico Nacional de Medellin 3-0 today.

Sergio Ramos will not be available for Real Madrid and Pepe is also questionable after missing Wednesday's training session, meaning that Nacho and Varane could be the ones playing in the center of Madrid's defensive line.

Other than that, it seems that every player is available with the exception of Gareth Bale. Zidane did not want to speak about his lineup, though.

"Tomorrow you will see the line-up. We are ready to play, only Sergio is out. If he could, he would play. We are ready for tomorrow and I will put the best team possible out. We have a lot of options but the idea is to put out the best team," said the French coach.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Lucas Vazquez, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Club America de Mexico Projected XI: Munoz, Valdez, Samudio, Arroyo, Goltz, Aguilar, Martinez, William da Silva, Oribe Peralta, Quintero, Romero.
