Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius, Benzema.
Shakhtar starting XI (TBC): Pyatov, Dodo, Santos, Matvienko, Ismaily, Maycon, Stepanenko, Tete, Solomon, Patrick, Fernando.
As expected, Ancelotti has decided to start Lucas Vazquez on the right side of the offensive line now that Rodrygo is out with an injury. Asensio also had a chance to start but Ancelotti chose Vazquez. Karim Benzema is back with the team after missing last Saturday’s trip to face Elche.
