Real Madrid just published the starting lineup for the upcoming Copa del Rey match against Celta.

Real Madrid starting XI: Casilla, Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Vazquez, Ronaldo, Asensio.

Celta Vigo starting XI: Sergio, Mallo, Cabral, Roncaglia, Jonny, Diaz, Radoja, Wass, Hernandez, Sisto, Aspas.

Zinedine Zidane has decided to start Cristiano Ronaldo in the center of Real's offensive line with Asensio and Lucas Vazquez in the flanks. That means that Karim Benzema will wait for his chance on the bench alongside Alvaro Morata.

The coach will not make rotations in the midfield, however, so Casemiro, Modric and Kroos will all start.

Real should have more than enough tools to dismantle Celta at the Bernabeu, but it will be very important for Los Blancos to keep a clean sheet in order to enjoy a manageable away game when they visit Celta's Balaidos in a week's time to play the return leg of the Quarterfinals.
