This is it for Real Madrid. Preseason football is over and Los Blancos must prove that they will take La Liga very seriously this year. It's been four seasons since Madrid last conquered the league title and while this core of players have enjoyed success in the Champions League, it's always good to show that you are the most consistent team in Spain as well.

Zidane will be forced to start most of his reserves but this men already proved that they have what it takes to collect some wins and be relevant players throughout what will be a very long season for Los Blancos.

Real Sociedad Projected XI: Rulli, Zaldua, Aritz, Martínez, Yuri, Illarramendi, Bergara, Vela, Olarzabal, Zurutuza, Juanmi.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Casilla, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Kovacic, Vázquez, Bale, Morata.

If this starting XI reported in Spain is confirmed, Asensio, Isco and James will sit on the bench.
