Real Madrid visit Almeria in the second game of the 2023-2024 La Liga season. Los Blancos are coming off a solid away win against Athletic Bilbao and they’ll try to keep their momentum going.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Lunin, Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Fran Garcia, Tchouameni, Valverde, Kroos, Bellingham, Rodrygo, Vinicius.
Almeria predicted XI: Mariño, Pozo, Gonzalez, Babic, Akieme, Baba, Robertone, Arribas, Embarba, Ramazani, Suarez.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti announced that Lunin will defend Real Madrid’s goal in this game even after the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga on a loan deal. Kepa will be expected to start the next game but Lunin will get a good chance to prove his worth tonight.
Camavinga missed Friday’s training session and will likely start the game on the bench, which means that Toni Kroos is set to get his first chance to feature in the starting lineup alongside Tchouameni and Valverde.
