Cristiano Ronaldo starts on the bench as Real Madrid travel to Barcelona in the first leg of the Supercopa de Espana.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been named on the bench for Real Madrid in the first leg of the Supercopa de Espana at Barcelona this evening.

The 32-year-old enjoyed an extended summer break following Portugal's exploits at the Confederations Cup and was limited to a brief cameo in Madrid's 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup last Tuesday.

Zinedine Zidane makes just one enforced change from that game in Macedonia, with Mateo Kovacic coming in for the suspended Luka Modric in midfield.

Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Isco provide the attacking threat, while Kovacic is joined by Casemiro and Toni Kroos in the middle of the park.

Dani Carvajal, skipper Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Marcelo are unchanged in the back four, ahead of Keylor Navas between the sticks.

Summer signings Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos are forced to wait for their competitive debuts and join Ronaldo on the bench.

For Barcelona, who are playing competitively without Neymar for the first time, Gerard Deulofeu joins Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez up front after impressing during a friendly with Chapecoense last week.

Aleix Vidal gets the nod ahead of Nelson Semedo at right-back and Ernesto Valverde pairs Samuel Umtiti with Gerard Pique at the heart of his four-man defence.

Jordi Alba is named at left-back, while Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta make up the midfield.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Vidal, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Deulofeu
Subs: Cillessen, Semedo, Denis, Mascherano, Alcacer, Digne, Roberto

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro; Kroos, Kovacic; Isco; Bale, Benzema
Subs: Casilla, Nacho, Ronaldo, Theo Hernandez, Vazquez, Asensio, Ceballos
