Real Madrid are hosting FC Sheriff Tiraspol at the Estadio Santiago Berbabeu on Tuesday for the second round of the 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League tournament. Both teams have won their first match and have three points each.
This is the first time Real Madrid and FC Sheriff Tiraspol will be meeting in any competition. FC Sheriff Tiraspol defeated Shakhtar Donetsk in the last UCL game and they are coming into this fixture after a 7-0 victory.
Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid team must not underestimate this team and below is a way Real Madrid could lineup.

Gk - Thibaut Courtois
DMR - Nacho Fernandes
DML - Miguel Gutierrez
Real Madrid's last game against Villarreal has shown that Miguel Gutierrez is the best option at the left-back position right now until Ferland Mendy returns, and Nacho Fernandes can not provide much in the attack.
DC - Eder Militao
DC - David Alaba
DMC - Casemiro
MC - Toni Kross
Toni Kross has revealed that he is happy and he has been able to complete three training sessions with the group without any pain after recovering from a 6-month injury. The German midfielder is prepared and believes he will be in the next squad to play in the Champions League.
MC - Luka Modric
AMR - Vinicius Junior
AML - Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard has been rested for two matches and it is high time he got back into the starting XI, and where else is better to welcome him than a UEFA Champions League game?
FC - Karim Benzema
