Predicted XIs: Carlo Ancelotti to give chances to two underused Real Madrid stars against Napoli.



Anticipated XIs: Carlo Ancelotti will give two underutilized Real Madrid talents opportunities against Napoli.Real Madrid recognize that a victory over Napoli at 21:00 CEST would only grant them a marginal possibility of overtaking Los Blancos for first place in their Champions League group. Napoli, on the other hand, are cognizant that a victory would only provide an outside chance at displacing Los Blancos.The eight injuries that Real Madrid are enduring—which have prompted Carlo Ancelotti to call up six Castilla players—will provide motivation for Napoli. Luka Modric is the most recent to be sidelined due to a minor hamstring injury. Arda Guler is accompanied to the treatment table by Kepa Arrizabalaga, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Vinicius Junior.

Toni Kroos and Fede Valverde, according to Diario AS, dominate the midfield, with Dani Ceballos making his season debut subsequent to his recovery from a muscle injury. Rodrygo Goes is anticipated to be paired with Joselu Mato or Brahim Diaz.A virus prevented Brahim from facing Cadiz, but he trained with the squad on Tuesday, and Marca is confident that he will be handed the starting lineup in addition to the Brazilian. Aside from Kepa’s untimely return, their lineup remains unchanged; Andriy Lunin will continue in goal. Theo Zidane has the potential to join his family as the fourth member to debut for the club.


Such concerns are unfounded for Napoli, as Victor Osimhen returned home over the weekend. The Madrid daily believes that rather than Raspadori, Giovanni Simeone will be given the opportunity to make his father proud from the outset. In contrast to the first leg, Amir Rahmani will start in central defense in place of Leo Ostigard.
