Real Madrid visit Red Bull Leipzig in the opening leg of the Champions League’s Round of 16 and they will be without star midfielder Jude Bellingham, who sprained his ankle during Saturday’s win against Girona. Brahim Diaz appears ready to replace him in the lineup but Ancelotti could also deploy Joselu as a striker to provide some more height against a physical team like Leipzig.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Lunin, Carvajal, Tchouameni, Nacho, Mendy, Camavinga, Kroos, Valverde, Brahim, Vinicius, Rodrygo.

Red Bull Leipzig predicted XI: Blaswich, Henrichs, Simakan, Lukeba, Raum, Schlager, Kampl, Olmo, Simons, Openda, Sesko.
