Real Madrid will welcome Shakhtar Donetsk at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this Wednesday night as they focus on picking up a positive result at home in the UEFA Champions League. Los Blancos were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Osasuna, so they will be eager to bounce back in this midweek fixture versus Shakhtar.

Carlo Ancelotti will set his players up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Eduardo Camavinga, Eder Militao and Federico Valverde will all play from the start in this European contest in the Spanish capital.

4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Shakhtar Donetsk

Defence

Thibaut Courtois is likely to miss this game due to an injury. In his absence, Andriy Lunin will continue to play in goal for Los Blancos after conceding one goal in his last outing.

Eder Militao will function alongside David Alaba at the heart of Ancelotti’s defence as they focus on stopping Shakhtar from creating too many chances on the counter.

Dani Carvajal will continue to feature at right-back while Ferland Mendy tries to put in an impressive performance as the left-back. Both of them would have to pick and choose their moments to join in on the attack.

Antonio Rudiger will drop to the bench for this game after his underwhelming display versus Osasuna last weekend as he offers cover for the centre-half spots.

Midfield

Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga will make up the Madrid midfield as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park. Kroos and Camavinga has to find a way to be a little creative in the Shakhtar half.

Luka Modric is a minor doubt for this game and will have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to be available for this game.

Attack

Vinicius Junior will definitely play as the left-winger following his goal-scoring display versus Osasuna last weekend. Federico Valverde could get a chance to catch the eye from the right flank.

Karim Benzema will lead the line for the Madrid club on the attacking end of the field. The French forward will be hungry to get his name on the scoresheet after a toothless display last weekend.

Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they hope to impress as the late-game substitutes if required.
