Real Madrid have published their starting XI for the upcoming match against Real Sociedad, which will be their 2020-2021 La Liga opener.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy, Odegaard, Kroos, Modric, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Benzema.

Real Sociedad starting XI (TBC): Remiro, Gorosabel, Elustondo, Llorente, Monreal, Guevara, Lopez, Merino, Portu, Oyarzabal, Isak.

As expected without Hazard and Asensio, coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to start both Rodrygo alongside Benzema. What’s surprising is seeing Odegaard featuring in the starting lineup in Casemiro’s spot, but it is surely exciting! Will Real Madrid be able to show improvements on the offensive end of the field or will they keep relying on their defense?
