Real Madrid published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Villarreal —21:00 CEST—.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy, Lucas Vázquez, Casemiro, Kroos, Bale, Benzema, Jovic.

Villarreal starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Fernández, Peña, Albiol, Torres, Quintilla, Anguissa, Cazorla, Chukwueze, Iborra, Gómez, Moreno.

Coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to start Luka Jovic for the first time this season. The Serbian attacker will have a very good opportunity to prove his worth as a starter alongside Karim Benzema. It will be interesting to see how the two attackers play together as this will be a tough game. Modric might come off the bench if needed.
