Real Madrid have published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Chelsea in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Semifinals.
Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Vinicius, Benzema.
Chelsea starting XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, Chilwell; Jorginho, Kanté; Mount, Pulisic, Werner.
Surprisingly enough, Zidane has decided to start with three center-backs, meaning that Carvajal and Marcelo will be able to focus on their offensive game and Asensio starts the game on the bench. Him and Hazard will be good assets to have later in the game.
