Real Madrid Players

Key players like Luka Jovic, Gareth Bale, Isco and Eden Hazard would be missing out on action for the Los Blancos side. Still, Carlo Ancelotti can heave a sigh of relief as he received a major boost in terms of his star defender David Alaba, who had been subbed off in the tie's first leg.

David Alaba has been included in the team list ahead of kickoff today, and players such as  Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez are also back from suspension. Key players such as Karim Benzema, Vinicius Jnr, and Toni Kroos, amongst others, had been rested in their title-clinching match against Espanyol, so Carlo Ancelotti is expected to field a very strong Real Madrid side.

Kylie Walker is still out injured for Pep Guardiola, who has also suffered huge defensive setbacks in terms of personnel as John Stones and Nathan Ake are both out due to a knock or the other.

Pep, however, received a huge boost as Jao Cancelo would be making a return from suspension in the UEFA Champions League.
