CONFIRMED lineups: Real Madrid vs Sporting Portugal, Champions League 2016

It's on.

Zinedine Zidane has decided to start his best available lineup after resting some of his players against Osasuna.

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

Sporting Portugal Starting XI: To Be Confirmed

It will be very important for Madrid to get the win and set the tone for the group stage, given that Borussia Dortmund will be a tough team to beat.

Karim Benzema makes his return to the starting line-up after missing quite some time with a hip injury. His competition with Morata for the starting job will be tough but Morata hasn't been very impressive so far, so Benzema must take advantage of the situation while he can.

The BBC will have a good chance to show their chemistry after Barcelona's brilliant performance last night. Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema will try to prove they are the best attacking trio in football.
