Real Madrid: team news
Zidane has opted to start with Isco, and Ronaldo is the 'BBC' member who does not start as a result. Although many expected Bale to drop to the bench, this move does not come as a great surprise, given Ronaldo's lack of playing time in pre-season.
Luka Modric is suspended as a result of a red card he picked up in the 2014 Super Cup final. Fellow Croatian Mateo Kovacic will replace him in the midfield.
