Real Madrid XI vs Man City: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news & latest injuries for Champions League game

Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and David Alaba all enjoyed minutes off as Madrid claimed the La Liga title at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Casemiro, who missed the first leg loss to Manchester City, was deployed in central defense in that victory and could return to a more natural place in midfield for Wednesday’s second leg.

Ancelotti has confirmed that Alaba should be fit enough to link up with Eder Militao in defence, while Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy will surely return to operate on either side.

Gareth Bale, unsurprisingly, missed the title celebrations with a back spasm so it looks even more unlikely to feature on the bench, while Rodrygo will hope to start alongside Benzema and Vinicius Jr.

Champions League royalty, the Spanish champions need all the experience they can get to turn the tide.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courteous; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Vinicius Jr, Benzema, Rodrygo
