Match preview

Los Blancos unchanged? - How Real Madrid could line up against Sheriff

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti may stick with a winning formula as Los Blancos travel to Tiraspol

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is not blessed with a lot of options currently which may lead to him naming an unchanged starting XI for Los Blancos' match with Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League.

Gareth Bale, Federico Valverde and Dani Ceballos are all definite absentees for Madrid, while Eden Hazard is a doubt due to illness.

Ancelotti may stick with the same line-up that won comfortably against Granada at the weekend, with Marco Asensio, Nacho, Vinicius Junior and Ferland Mendy all scoring in the 4-1.

Thibaut Courtois will start in goal behind a defence of Dani Carvajal, Nacho, David Alaba and Mendy.

Eder Militao is pushing for a start, but Nacho scored at the weekend so he may be kept in.

With Valverde injured and Eduardo Camavinga not yet a regular starter, Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos could continue in midfield.

With Bale and Hazard, again, unavailable, it should be a relatively easy decision for Ancelotti to name Asensio, Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema as his front three, though Rodrygo has a case to be involved also.
