Real Madrid just published their starting XI for the upcoming match against APOEL Nicosia in what will be their second to last game of the Champions League Group Stage. Los Blancos will clinch their presence in the Round of 16 with a win no matter what happens in the other match between Tottenham and Dortmund.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Casilla; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Kroos, Lucas, Modrić, Asensio; Benzema, Ronaldo.

APOEL Starting XI: Nauzet Pérez; Vouros, Rueda, Carlao, Roberto Lago; Sallai, Zahid; Vinicius, Morais, Aloneftis; Poté.

Real Madrid could use some momentum and confidence after their recent struggles, especially in front of goal, where Benzema and Ronaldo have left much to be desired. APOEL should play with intensity in front of their fans but Los Blancos have more talent and tools to win the game and earn the statement win they need to bounce back and show some improvements.
