How Real Madrid could line up against Al Ain

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Saturday's Club World Cup final against Al Ain.

Real Madrid will be looking to land their third straight Club World Cup when they face Al Ain in the final of the 2018 competition on Saturday.

Los Blancos are the defending champions having beaten Gremio in last year's final and booked their spot in the 2018 final with a 3-1 win over Kashima Antlers on Wednesday.

Abu Dhabi outfit Al Ain, meanwhile, beat River Plate on penalties in the first semi-final on Tuesday.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Champions League winners Real could line up this weekend.


POSS RM XI vs. AL AIN

Doubtful: Nacho (knee), Mariano Diaz (muscle)

Boss Santiago Solari has no injury concerns from the team that started or indeed finished the clash with Kashima Antlers, which saw Gareth Bale score a brilliant hat-trick.

Marco Asensio and Isco both came off the bench in the semi-final, but it seems likely that Bale and Lucas Vazquez will continue in the final third alongside Karim Benzema.

Casemiro made his return from an ankle problem against Kashima Antlers though, and the Brazilian could take the place of Marcos Llorente in midfield.

Solari is unlikely to disturb the back four, meanwhile, with Dani Carvajal and Marcelo seemingly over their recent injury problems.
