The trio of Dani Carvajal, Ferland Mendy, and Isco have all been ruled out of Tuesday's contest due to their respective injury problems.

Real Madrid Predicted Starting Lineup:

Thibaut Courtois; Nacho, Gabriel Militão, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy, Valverde, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Vinicius, Karim Benzema, Rodrygo
