Real Madrid have published their starting XI for the upcoming clash against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius, Benzema.

Athletic Bilbao starting XI (TBC): Unai Simon, Lekue, Nuñez, Yeray, Balenziaga, Dani Garcia, Vencedor, N. Williams, Muniain, Raul Garcia, Williams.

Contrary to what was expected, Ancelotti has decided not to make some small tweaks in order to keep his players fresh. He will need physicality and intensity in the next few games with Saturday’s visit to Real Sociedad and the following matches against Inter Milan and Atletico de Madrid, but it seems that his main priority is winning games right now.
