Real Madrid will face off against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in midweek as they try to pick a positive result and lift the UEFA Super Cup. Los Blancos will be eager to kick off their campaign well and go into the La Liga full of confidence about retaining their league title.
Carlo Ancelotti is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could name a strong team for this game. Karim Benzema will lead the charge for the Madrid giants up top.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Eintracht Frankfurt
Thibaut Courtois will feature in goal for Los Blancos as he looks to secure a clean sheet on Wednesday night. Eder Militao will resume his partnership with David Alaba at the heart of Ancelotti’s defence as they try to keep things solid during the 90 minutes.
Dani Carvajal will hope to impress at right-back while Ferland Mendy fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Ancelotti will give both of them the license to get forward and join in on the attack.
Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos could make up Ancelotti’s midfield as they focus on dominating possession at the centre of the park and engineer some clear-cut chances for their teammates up top.
We can expect Modric to be the main playmaker for Los Blancos while Casemiro and Kroos look to offer some solid protection for their backline.
Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their chance to impress in the second half if Ancelotti decides to call upon their services.
Karim Benzema will definitely lead the line for the Spanish outfit in the final third. Vinicius Junior could get the nod to give a good account of himself from the left flank while Federico Valverde looks to put in another industrious display as a makeshift right-winger.
The talented front three did enough to win the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool earlier this summer. Hence, Ancelotti could rely on them once again to put in a productive performance collectively in this midweek clash versus Oliver Glasner’s men.
Both Eden Hazard and Rodrygo will have to settle for a spot on the bench but might come on in the latter stages of the game if the Madrid club are in need of a goal. Rodrygo played a crucial role behind Los Blancos’ Champions League winning run last season, so he will be hungry to get a goal off the bench in midweek.
