Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Sheriff Tiraspol in the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Nacho, Militao, Alaba, Miguel, Casemiro, Camavinga, Valverde, Hazard, Vinicius, Benzema.

Sheriff starting XI (TBC): Athanaslidis, Costanza, Hurtado, Dulanto, Cristiano, Addo, Kolovos, Thill, Traore, Velez, Yakhshiboev.

As expected, Carlo Ancelotti has decided to make some rotations tonight, but not as many as some predicted. Only Modric is resting. Real Madrid are the heavy favorites to beat Sheriff but at the same time they will have to take care of business, something which sounds simple but is not that easy against a defensive side.
