Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Shakhtar in the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Mendy, Varane, Militao, Marcelo, Casemiro, Valverde, Modric, Asensio, Rodrygo, Jovic.

Shakhtar starting XI (TBC): Trubin, Dodo, Khocholava, Bondar, Korniienko, Maycon, Patrick, Marlos, Kovalenko, Taison, Dentinho.

Surprising start for Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy tonight. The French defender will be the right-back against Shakhtar and Jovic will start upfront without Karim Benzema in what will be a precious opportunity for him to prove his worth after a solid start to the season.
