Real Madrid squad & team news

Carlo Ancelotti announced a 23-man squad for the game, with Karim Benzema among the cohort after returning from injury against Osasuna at the weekend.

Thibaut Courtois remains out of action, meaning Andriy Lunin is set to start in goal, but Luka Modric has recovered from a hamstring injury and is in line to play. Lucas Vazquez is also available for selection again.

Eden Hazard is included in the panel and will be pushing for inclusion alongside Vinicius Jr and Benzema in the forward line.

Real Madrid possible XI: Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy; Tchouameni, Kroos, Modric; Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Benzema.

Shakhtar would have had a fully fit squad to choose from for the game, but defender Viktor Korniyenko is out of action. Brazilian full-back Lucas Taylor will provide width going forward on the counter-attack, but Shakhtar are expected to sit in and defend against Madrid, meaning a lot will be asked of Taras Stepanenko in shielding the back line.

Shakhtar Donetsk possible XI: Trubin; Bondar, Matviyenko, Konoplya, Taylor; Stepanenko, Sudakov, Bondarenko, Mudryk, Shved; Zubkov.
