Real Madrid just published their starting XI for the upcoming —20:45 CET— match against Real Sociedad, a clear must-win for Los Blancos.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Theo, Casemiro, Modric, Isco, Bale, Asensio, Mayoral.

Real Sociedad Starting XI: Rulli; Odriozola, Llorente, Elustondo, Kevin; Illara, Zurutuza, Xavi Prieto; Januzaj, Canales, William José.

It will be tremendously important for Madrid to control the game as Real Sociedad are playing great football this season. They’ve won all four of their games and they’ll be looking forward to doing the exact same things against Madrid’s reserves tonight.

Gareth Bale will be expected to accept his role as a leader now that most of the starters are not available. It’s time for the Welshman to deliver but he will also need help from his teammates if Madrid want to succeed at Anoeta.

Stay tuned to Managing Madrid right after the final whistle to read all of our post-match coverage.
