Real Madrid just published the starting XI for the upcoming match against APOEL —20:45 CET, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu—.
Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Isco, Bale, Ronaldo.
APOEL starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Waterman, Milanov, Rueda, Carlao, Lago, Vinicius, Morais, Ebecilio, Oar, Alonefitis, Camargo.
As expected, Zinedine Zidane is starting pretty much his best available team considering that players like Karim Benzema or Marco Asensio are not available. Real Madrid will have to play without Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo next Sunday so it makes sense for Zidane to use them now and then wait for them to be available again as they also rest and get ready for tougher games.
Real Madrid need to get a win in this match. Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham won’t make things easy for Los Blancos in this Group Stage so the games against APOEL could very well be crucial.
