Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Alaves in La Liga.
Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Hazard, Asensio, Mariano.
Alaves starting XI (TBC): Pacheco, Navarro, Lejeune, Laguardia, Duarte, Mendez, Pina, Battaglia, Jota, Joselu, Perez.
Marcelo features in the starting lineup, a risky decision considering that Mendy is available and that Marcelo’s performances have been so poor as of late. Still, this is the most manageable game for Zidane to give Mendy some rest, so it makes sense to take advantage of it.
This is a very important game for Madrid as they try to gain momentum ahead of their next four games against Shakhtar, Sevilla, Gladbach and Atletico de Madrid.
