Real Madrid visit Union Berlin in what’s a meaningless game for Los Blancos, who have already secured the group win and have nothing to play for tonight. That means that coach Carlo Ancelotti will likely make some heavy rotations in this one, even if Union Berlin can still play in the Europa League if they beat Madrid tonight.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Kepa, Vazquez, Nacho, Alaba, Fran Garcia, Kroos, Ceballos, Modric, Nico Paz, Brahim, Joselu.

Union Berlin predicted XI: Ronnow, Juranovic, Knoche, Leite, Roussillon, Khedira, Laidouni, Haberer, Volland, Gosens, Behrens.

Academy player Nico Paz will likely get his first chance to feature in the starting lineup as Bellingham is expected to get some needed rest tonight. Fran Garcia could also return to the starting XI, just like Nacho and Ceballos.
