Predicted Real Madrid XI vs RB Leipzig

Real Madrid host RB Leipzig at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu this evening in the second round of the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

Los Blancos are hoping to continue their winning streak in the tournament, having defeated Celtic 3-0 last week.

The European champions will be without Éder Militão, Karim Benzema and Lucas Vázquez, who are all sidelined due to injuries.

Carlo Ancelotti will certainly make some changes to the side that defeated Mallorca 4-1. Aurélien Tchouaméni will most likely replace Dani Ceballos in midfield. Luka Modrić is expected to play in the middle of the park, pushing Federico Valverde to play on the wing.

Despite scoring a goal over the weekend, Eden Hazard is believed to be starting the match on the bench.

AS predict that Ancelotti will field the following starting XI vs RB Leipzig: Thibaut Courtois – Dani Caravajal, Antonio Rüdiger, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy – Luka Modrić, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Toni Kroos – Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinícius Júnior.
