Real Madrid and Osasuna face off in a rare Copa del Rey Final where Los Blancos are the heavy favorites to conquer the title. David Alaba is finally back and ready and he will likely feature in the starting lineup.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga, Kroos, Ceballos, Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.

Osasuna predicted XI: Herrera, Peña, Hernandez, Cruz, Sanchez, Muñoz, Moncayola, Oroz, Barza, Garcia, Gomez.

The main question here is Modric’s replacement. Coach Ancelotti could start either Tchouameni or Ceballos in that spot, with the Spanish midfielder being the most seamless choice in terms of playing style. Real Madrid will likely need some creativity against Osasuna’s defense, so Ceballos would also make more sense in that regard.

Vinicius will be back in the starting lineup as the offensive line tries to gain confidence and momentum ahead of Tuesday’s match against Manchester City.
