Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Villarreal.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Valverde, Militao, Alaba, Nacho, Casemiro, Modric, Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.

Villarreal starting XI (TBC): Rulli, Foyth, Torres, Albiol, Pedraza, Capoue, Trigueros, Parejo, Gomez, Danjuma, Alcacer.

This is a crucial game for Real Madrid, although also a tough one. Atletico de Madrid lost against Alaves tonight so Los Blancos could be five points ahead of their city neighbors if they manage to score the three points against Villarreal, which won’t be easy. Modric and Casemiro are back in the starting lineup and their presence should help the team defensively.
