- With the only loss of Rodrygo, Ancelotti has several options to design the scoreboard for his debut against Almería
Real Madrid arrives on the first day of the League with almost all its troops ready. Only Rodrygo, with muscular discomfort, will not be among those available for Ancelotti and that implies that the Italian has several options to design his eleven.
Especially after a demanding game like the European Super Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt, which has only been 72 hours away.
Even so, everything indicates that Courtois will be the starting goalkeeper accompanied in defense by Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, and Mendy. Rüdiger, for his part, would continue to wait for his opportunity in a defense in which ownership will be very expensive.
In the center of the field, Casemiro, who was the MVP of the last Super Cup final, aims to start while his companions could be Valverde and Kroos, leaving Modric on the bench to start dosing him.
Lastly, in attack, Asensio could enter the right-wing space that Rodrygo would leave together with Benzema and Vinicius, indisputable for Ancelotti.
Lineup: Courtois; Carvajal, Alaba, Militao, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde, Asensio, Vinicius and Benzema
