Two Ways Real Madrid can lineup tonight as Ancelotti confirms the best formation for the club

Real Madrid will return to action tonight when they face Shakhtar Donetsk in their 3rd group game in the Champions League. Real Madrid lost to sheriff in their their last UCL game which means victory is important today.

Real Madrid has released the official squad to play the game. The list includes Marcelo and Mendy who just returned from injuries. Hazard was not included in the squad but according to Carlo Ancelotti in his press conference, the Belgian star is not injured. Ancelotti probably wants to keep him fit for El Classico. 

Since his return as the Manager, Ancelotti has used different formations which includes the 4-4-2 and 4-4-3 formations. The manager has now confirmed that his current squad can only play the 4-3-3 formation. With this, here are two possible line ups he can use Tonight.


Mendy can return to the starting line up immediately with Nacho also playing as right back. Ancelotti can use the experience of Casemiro, Modric and Kroos while Rodrygo should join Benzema and Vinicius can start in attack.


Not much difference from the first option but Marcelo can also start in left back while Valverde can replace Luka Modric.
