Possible Real Madrid XI vs Celtic

Real Madrid travel to Glasgow to take on Celtic on matchday one of the 2022-23 Champions League group stage.

The last time Real Madrid visited Celtic was 42 years ago, in the 1979-1980 season. That Madrid side managed to come back from a 2-0 defeat to the Scots at the Bernabéu.

A 3-0 win in the second leg saw the Madrid side qualify for the semi-finals of the European Cup.

Possible Real Madrid starting XI vs Celtic (AS):

Courtois – Lucas Vázquez, Militão, Rüdiger, Mendy – Modric or Ceballos, Tchouaméni, Kroos – Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.

Carlo Ancelotti has travelled to Glasgow with a 22-man squad.

Lunin, Luis López, Carvajal, Nacho, Alaba, Camavinga, Ceballos or Modric, Rodrygo, Asensio, Hazard and Mariano are the remaining members of the Madrid squad.
