Real Madrid will be playing against Deportivo Alaves in their opening game of the 2021/2022 La Liga season at the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Saturday.

According to Marca, Carvajal, Mendy, Odriozola, and Kross are all out for the first La Liga game. And it's also very unlikely that Benzema will play. If nothing happens, Eden Hazard will be available against Alaves on Saturday. His recovery process is going very well.

Using Carlos Ancelotti's favourite 4-2-3-1 formation, below is Real Madrid's likely lineup for their first game.

GK-Thibaut Courtois

DML-Marcelo Viera

We may see Real Madrid academy player, Miguel Gutierrez, replace the captain. The Spanish left-back has proven very reliable in the pre-season fixtures and, with Ferland Mendy out for a month, Miguel Gutierrez may replace him at the left-back position with Marcelo rotating with him.

DMR-Lucas Vasquez

DL-David Alaba

DR-Eder Militao


MC-Luka Modric

AMC-Eden Hazard

AML-Rodrygo Goes

AMR-Gareth Bale

FC-Luka Jovic

Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz will have to prove themselves in the starting matches of the La Liga season. 


Due to Kross' injury, the Croatian will have to play more minutes. Isco Alarcon, Martin Odegaard, Federico Valverde, and Dani Ceballos will fight to replace Kross.
