Rodrygo to start? - How Real Madrid could line up against Alaves

Real Madrid are coming off a disappointing result against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is expected to make a couple of changes to his starting XI for this weekend's La Liga fixture against Alaves.

Los Blancos played in the Champions League on Tuesday but it proved to be a disappointing evening.

Against Paris Saint-Germain, Madrid were fairly uninspiring, with Ancelotti receiving criticism for the pragmatic performance on the night.

In the end, a goal from Kylian Mbappe gave PSG the last-16 first-leg victory.

Madrid have no fresh injury concerns, with Mariano Diaz the only senior player currently unavailable.

Thibaut Courtois will start in goal behind a back four of Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba and Ferland Mendy.

In midfield, Federico Valverde might be given a rare start in place of Luka Modric.

Toni Kroos and Casemiro will likely retain their spots from Champions League duties.

Marco Asensio did not have a particularly inspiring evening against PSG, so he make way for Rodrygo, who entered the action on Tuesday as a sub.

The Brazilian will probably be selected ahead of both Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale for a start.
