Real Madrid will welcome Valencia at the King Fahd International Stadium on Wednesday night as they looked to earn a victory in the Supercopa de Espana. Los Blancos suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Villarreal recently which could drain their confidence ahead of this game.
Carlo Ancelotti might stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and are expected to name a strong first XI for this game. Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio could both get a chance to impress from the start in this midweek game.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Valencia
Thibaut Courtois will operate in between the sticks for the Spanish club after shipping in a couple of goals in his last outing. David Alaba will resume his defensive partnership with Antonio Rudiger at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline as they look to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Dani Carvajal, who is a minor doubt for this game, could play as the right-back while Ferland Mendy hopes to give a good account of himself on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them could get the license to get forward and express themselves in the opponent’s half.
Alvaro Odriozola is a major doubt for his game as he continues to recover from an injury. However, Nacho will be available for a place on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back positions.
Dani Ceballos, Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde will anchor the midfield for Real Madrid as they focus on dominating the game at the centre of the park and engineer some clear-cut chances for his teammates to find the back of the net.
Luka Modric will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if his manager asks him to do so.
Vinicius Junior will get a chance to impress as the left-winger while Marco Asensio tries to make a difference from the right flank. Karim Benzema will lead the line for the Madrid outfit in the final third. The French striker managed to get his name on the scoresheet from the penalty spot last weekend which should keep him in high spirits going into this cup clash.
Rodrygo and Eden Hazard will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the latter stages of the game if Carlo Ancelotti opts to call upon their services.
