Zinedine Zidane has not made many changes from the starting lineup that he chose last weekend.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casilla, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Bale, Asensio, Morata.

Celta Vigo Starting XI: To Be Confirmed

James will start the game on the bench even at home. Zidane could have decided to leave Casemiro on the bench and start a more offensive-minded team with James on the lineup, but the Colombian midfielder will still have to wait for his chance as rumors keep suggesting that he could be on his way out.

Asensio, Morata and Gareth Bale will be looking forward to keep their momentum going after a good performance last weekend. Asensio was included in Spain's list for the next two games, his match against Real Sociedad was great and he still has many things to offer.

Celta will be a very dangerous team off counterattacks, so Varane and Ramos must be careful whenever the Galician side try to attack.
