4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Line Up Vs Elche
Andrey Lunin will continue to operate in between the sticks for Madrid looking to keep a clean sheet in this midweek encounter. David Alaba will form a defensive partnership with Antonio Rudiger at the heart of Real Madrid’s backline as they look to keep things solid at the back throughout the game.
Nacho Fernandez will operate as the right-back while Eduardo Camavinga gives a good account of himself on the other flank. Both of them could get the license to get forward and express themselves in the opponent’s half.
Alvaro Odriozola and Dani Carvajal will offer cover for the defensive positions from the bench.
The talented trio of Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni and Luka Modric will anchor the midfield for Real Madrid once again as they focus on dominating the game at the centre of the park and engineering some clear-cut chances for their teammates to find the back of the net.
Dani Ceballos will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.
Vinicius Junior will continue in the left wing while Federico Valverde tries to make a difference from the right flank. As mentioned earlier, Karim Benzema will lead the charge against the opposition down the middle.
Rodrygo and Marco Asensio will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the latter stages of the game if Ancelotti opts to call upon their services.
