Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Real Madrid could line up in Tuesday's Champions League clash with Atalanta BC.

Real Madrid will be aiming to advance to the last eight of the Champions League when they host Atalanta BC for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday night.

Los Blancos, who hold a 1-0 advantage from the first leg, will again be without the services of Dani Carvajal due to a hamstring problem, while key midfielder Casemiro is suspended courtesy of the yellow card that he picked up in the reverse match with Atalanta last month.

Zinedine Zidane's side will also be unable able to call upon Alvaro Odriozola or Mariano Diaz, with both players missing out against Elche in La Liga on Saturday.

Marcelo has been included in the squad after recovering from a slight muscular issue, but Eden Hazard has suffered another muscular problem and will not be involved here.

Casemiro's absence means that Federico Valverde is expected to start in midfield alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, who were both named on the bench against Elche.

Marco Asensio was an unused substitute on Saturday but should return to the XI, while Vinicius Junior is expected to get the nod over Rodrygo Goes to feature in the final third of the field.

Karim Benzema missed the first leg through injury but is a certain starter in this match, while Sergio Ramos made his return from a knee injury at the weekend and should be handed another spot in the XI here.

Raphael Varane, Lucas Vazquez and Ferland Mendy should make up the back four, with Nacho potentially dropping down to the bench on Tuesday.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup: Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Kroos, Valverde, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius
