Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for tonight's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, which will be the last of this group stage.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, James, Modrić; Vázquez, Benzema, Ronaldo.

Borussia Dortmund Starting XI: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Bartra, Papastathopoulos, Schmelzer, Castro, Weigl, Pulišić, Schürrle, Dembélé, Aubameyang.

Real Madrid will win their group if they beat Borussia, but Los Blancos could actually face more manageable opposition if they finish second. Big clubs like PSG, Bayern Munich or Manchester City could be Real's opponents in the Round of 16 if Zidane's men win their group, while Los Blancos would not face neither Atletico de Madrid nor Barcelona if they finish second because teams from the same country cannot face each other in the next round.

All in all, Madrid will most likely play with intensity trying to win the game instead of speculating.
