Real Madrid just published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Numancia, which will be the opening leg of their Copa del Rey tie.
Real Madrid starting XI: Casilla, Carvajal, Nacho, Vallejo, Theo, Llorente, Ceballos, Bale, Vazquez, Asensio, Mayoral.
Numancia projected XI (To be Confirmed): Munir, Exteberria, Elgezabal, Gutierrez, Varcarce, Larrea, Sierra, Nacho, Nieto, Valcarce, Guillermo.
Los Blancos will try to earn a comfortable away win as that would make things much easier for the return leg at the Bernabeu. Madrid visit Celta Vigo next Sunday and can’t afford to drop any more points if they want to compete for La Liga title, that being the reason why Zidane kept most of his key starters out of this match against Numancia.
