Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the season opener against Alaves —22:00 CEST, Mendizorroza—.
Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Militao, Nacho, Alaba, Casemiro, Modric, Valverde, Bale, Hazard, Benzema.
Alaves starting XI (TBC): Pacheco, Martin, Laguardia, Lejeune, Duarte, Pina, Pons, Edgar, Rioja, Lucas, Joselu.
This is Carlo Ancelotti’s first lineup of the season and it’s an interesting one. Toni Kroos and Dani Carvajal will certainly feature in the XI once they recover from their injuries, but it will be interesting to see if players like X can prove their worth and show that they can play relevant minutes consistently this season.
