Projected Lineups: Real Madrid – Roma

real madrid football tactics

Zinedine Zidane is expected to display his usual eleven starters to face Roma in the Champions League, with the only expeption of Karim Benzema, who will be sidelined due to injury.

The France international could be replaced by Jese Rodriguez or James Rodriguez, although Lucas Vazquez, who has put in some great performances in the past two games, also has chances of starting.

Gareth Bale proved last weekend against Celta Vigo that he is completely recovered from his injury and ready to become a starter again. With Toni Kroos and Luka Modric also recovered from their injuries, the midfield line should be formed by Bale, Modric, Kroos and Isco.

In defence, Zidane will most likely display Daniel Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo. Keylor Navas will keep goal as usual.

This is Real Madrid’s projected starting eleven: Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Bale, Modric, Kroos, Isco; Jese Rodriguez, Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti is expected to make very few changes from the starting eleven he displayed in the first leg.

This is Roma’s projected starting eleven: Szczesny; Florenzi, Manolas, Zukanovic, Digne; Pjanic, Vainqueur, Nainggolan; Salah, Perotti, El Shaarawy.
