Confirmed Real Madrid team to face Liverpool – 2 changes from the 1st leg

Carlo Ancelotti has made two changes to his Real Madrid team that beat Liverpool 5-2 at Anfield.

Toni Kroos comes into midfield alongside Luka Modric and Eduardo Camavinga, as Rodrygo drops to the bench.

Nacho Fernandez comes into the Champions League side to play left-back, instead of David Alaba who is injured.

Karim Benzema is fit to return to the team having missed the weekend’s game against Espanyol with an ankle problem, and the Frenchman will be flanked by Vinicius Jr to his left, and Federico Valverde to his right.
