It's time for Real Madrid to make a statement and earn a convincing win against one of Europe's best teams. Here's what Zidane's starting XI looks like.
Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Danilo, Modrić, Kroos, James, Bale, Benzema, Cristiano.
Out: Casemiro (ankle), Marcelo (calf)
Borussia Dortmund Starting XI: (To Be Confirmed) Burki, Piszczek, Sokratis, Ginter, Schmelzer, Weigl, Castro, Gotze, Guerreiro, Dembele, Aubameyang
Out: Durm (knee), Reus (groin)
The physicality of both teams will be a very important factor tonight, as Dortmund like to play with intensity. Their speed on the wings could be very problematic for Real Madrid, although it's also true that Los Blancos could hurt them through counterattacks as well.
Zidane has decided to start James in the midfield in what could be a risky move. The Colombian playmaker will have to work very hard if Madrid want to contain Dortmund's attacking efforts through the midfield.
