Last week, the Blancos beat Celtic 3-0 to start their UEFA journey to an eight-game winning streak. On this Wednesday Real Madrid’s second Champions League group match against RB Leipzig will be held at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It would be a challenging game, with the German as the toughest of the three rivals in the Champions League group at Los Blancos and the night’s champion would go a long way to secure the top spot. This time, however, Real Madrid will be without the services of Karim Benzema, Eder Militao and Lucas Vazquez.
What tactics will Carlo Ancelotti use?
Carlo Ancelotti will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make some changes to his fits XI squad this game. Mariano Diaz and Luka Modric will play from the start, as Eden Hazard and Dani Ceballos will take their place on the bench.
Marco Rose will use a 4-2-3-1 formation with Timo Werner leading the charge while Christopher Nkunku and Dominik Szoboszlai provide wide support. Emil Forsberg will likely remain in the team’s No. 10 position, while Willi Orban will be paired with Abdou Diallo at center-back.
