Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Atalanta in the first leg of the Champions League’s Round of 16.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Varane, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio, Vinicius, Isco.

Atalanta starting XI (TBC): Golini, Toloi, Romero, Djimsiti, Maehle, Roon, Freuler, Gosens, Pessina, Muriel, Zapata.

Isco starts with Mariano potentially coming off the bench. Isco’s role tonight remains to be seen, although reports from Spain suggest that he could play as a false nine. With this lineup, there’s a chance Real Madrid play with a 4-4-2 with Asensio and Vinicius upfront.
