How Real Madrid could line up against Roma

Sports Mole takes a look at how Real Madrid could line up in Tuesday's Champions League clash with Roma.

Real Madrid will be looking to book their spot in the last-16 stage of the Champions League when they travel to Roma on Tuesday night.

Both Madrid and Roma have collected nine points from their four Group G matches this term, and a win for either would see them advance to the knockout round of the competition with a match to spare.

Los Blancos recorded a 3-0 victory in the reverse match earlier this season but will enter this contest off the back of a 3-0 defeat at Eibar in La Liga.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Madrid could line up in Italy on Tuesday night.


POSS RM XI vs. ROMA

Out: Nacho (knee), Casemiro (ankle), Sergio Reguilon (muscle)
Doubtful: Alvaro Odriozola (knock), Mariano Diaz (muscle)

Madrid boss Santiago Solari might be keen to ring the changes following the disappointing defeat at Eibar, but the capital giants do not have that many first-team options.

Indeed, Nacho and Casemiro remain on the sidelines, while Alvaro Odriozola was forced off against Eibar and is expected to be unavailable.

Dani Carvajal replaced Odriozola on Saturday and should be ready to return to the XI, though, as part of Madrid's first-choice defensive unit.

Dani Ceballos was particularly disappointing against Eibar, and his midfield spot could be taken by Isco, with Lucas Vazquez also potentially coming into the XI at the expense of the out-of-form Marco Asensio.

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will both keep their positions in the XI, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos should also start once again.
