Right back: Dani Carvajal – He’s had to face competition from Lucas Vazquez, Militao, Nacho and Alvaro Odriozola at right-back this season but starts more often.
Center back: Eder Militao – He headed home against Espanyol on Saturday as Real came from behind to win 3-1.
Center back: Antonio Rudiger – A strong partnership is being formed with Militao which is ominous in Alaba’s absence.
Left-back: Nacho Fernandez – Eduardo Camavinga looked a bit at fault at the weekend so the reliable Nacho should be sent on at left back in the absence of both Ferland Mendy and David Alaba.
