Real Madrid fans choose their starting XI for Bayern clash



Over 30,000 supporters voted for their preferred team to take to the field against Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena. Will Zidane agree on the night?

An survey gave supporters of Real Madrid the chance to put forward their choice for the starting team to play in tonight's Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich. The result was the Cardiff final team...minus Karim Benzema.

Almost unanimous choices
