Real Madrid Vs Barcelona: Talking Tactics

Carlo Ancelotti will make use of the 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI. Luka Modric and Aurelien Tchouameni could get a chance to play from the start while Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos drop to the bench.

Xavi will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Raphinha and Ronald Araujo will get a chance to play from the start in this cup clash on the road.

Ancelotti remains without the service of Ferland Mendy due to a thigh injury which is yet to heal, and he has since been joined in the treatment room by Rodrygo and David Alaba, who came off with injuries in the Champions League win over Liverpool recently. However, Aurelien Tchouameni has recovered from his illness and will be pushing for a start alongside Luka Modric.

Real Madrid Predicted XI

Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Nacho; Kroos, Tchouameni, Modric; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Jr


Xavi has fresh injury concerns as Barca have suffered an untimely injury blow with Lewandowski coming off with a hamstring injury during the weekend’s defeat to Almeria. Furthermore, Ousmane Dembele and Pedri are also out of contention with their own thigh problems but Xavi is hopeful that Ansu Fati could recover in time for the away encounter.

Barcelona Predicted XI

Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Balde; De Jong, Busquets, Roberto; Raphinha, Torres, Gavi
