La Liga

La Liga: How Real Madrid could line up after international break.

After the international break, Real Madrid will resume La Liga action with a game against Celta Vigo at Santiago Bernabeu on the 12th of September.

The game serves as an opportunity for Eduardo Camavinga, who the club bought on deadline day, to make his debut.

As such, we might get to see a little tweak in the team's starting XI.

In this article, we'll be looking at how Carlo Ancelotti could set up his side when the league restarts. Let's have a look:

Attack

The trio of Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, and Gareth Bale should occupy the center-forward, left-wing-forward, and right-wing-forward positions respectively.

Marco Asensio and Vinicius Jr, who have been on hot form, are other options for the Los Blancos side in the attacking positions.

Midfield

The possible introduction of Camavinga to the starting XI could mean that Casemiro stays on the bench. As such, the young Frenchman would occupy the defensive-midfield position.

Luka Modric and Valverde could occupy the other midfield positions.

Defense

Many changes are not expected in the defensive setup. The duo of David Alaba and Militao is expected to keep their places in central defense while Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy play as full-backs.

Club captain Marcelo is also an option for the team in the left-back position.

Thibaut Courtois' place in the goalkeeping position is not threatened as the club has no solid replacements on the bench.

Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:

Real Madrid has started the season quite well. They currently sit top of the La Liga Santander table with goals difference.

As such, the Los Blancos side will be hoping to continue their impressive form when the league restarts.
