As part of the fourth round of the group stage of the European Champions League.
Although Real Madrid have won their first three matches and lead their group by a comfortable margin, the team wants to win a game
Today to ensure qualification and the lead, and avoid surprises that could arise in the last two laps.
But that doesn't mean coach Carlo Ancelotti won't try to rest some of the key players, especially as the team will face their opponent.
The traditional Barcelona are in the El Clasico game next Sunday, and so the Italian manager will try to use this match to rest a bit
items, and provide the opportunity to participate in some spare players.
There's a dispute in the sources over Real Madrid 's expected line-up for today's game, but there's near-unanimity that Ancelotti plans to rest.
Vinicius Junior, and that will pave the way for Marco Asensio to compete alongside Karim Benzema and Rodrygo.
Eden Hazard is also expected to take part in the match instead of Rodrygo. And off the offensive line, it's very possible to see a sit-down
Luka Modric and Federico Valverde on the bench, pushing them on in the second half.
Real Madrid 's expected line-up is as follows:
Gardien : Andrei Lunin
Line of defense: Lucas Vazquez .. Antonio Rudiger .. Eder Militao .. Ferland Mendy
Midfield: Aurelien Chuamini .. Toni Kroos .. Eduardo Camavinga
Forwards: Rodrygo (Hazard), Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio
