Real Madrid released the Starting XI for tonight's Champions League match against AS Roma.

AS Roma Starting XI: Szczesny; Florenzi, Manolas, Rüdiger, Digne; Pjanic, Vainqueur, Nainggolan; El Shaarawy, Perotti, Salah.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Modric, Isco, James, Ronaldo, Benzema.

As we've been saying early this week, it will be crucial for Real Madrid to score away goals to prevent scares in the return leg at the Santiago Bernabéu.

There are no surprises in Real Madrid's XI, with Isco and Marcelo both making their return to the starting line-up. Dzeko will finally start the match from the bench and that's good news for Varane and Ramos as they won't have to fight in the air against the Bosnian striker.

Expect Real Madrid to play with intensity and get a win it things work out well for them. It will be important to score away goals, as always in the Champions League.
