Real Madrid have published their starting XI for the upcoming match against Alaves, which will be played at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano this Friday —22:00 CEST—.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.

Defenders: Militão, Varane, Mendy, Javi Hernández and Miguel Gutiérrez.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Asensio, Brahim, Mariano, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.

Eden Hazard will be back with the team after missing the last two games with some pain on his recently recovered ankle. Madrid will be without Ramos and Carvajal —suspended— while Marcelo is also missing the game, which means that Zidane will be forced to play Mendy on the left and Lucas Vazquez on the right side of the defensive line.

Alaves have struggled since the return of the competition and Madrid should still have what it takes to take care of business and keep their lead in the table.
