Possible eleven of Real Madrid in the friendly with Rangers

The white team faces the Glasgow team at Ibrox Park without most of the internationals and with many homegrown players.


Real Madrid disputes this Sunday from 7:00 p.m. (Real Madrid TV) their first friendly of the 2021-22 preseason. It will not strictly be the first game, as the whites have already played two training duels in Valdebebas since preparation began, against Fuenlabrada (3-1) and Rayo (1-1), but they were both behind closed doors. In Glasgow, Ancelotti's new Madrid will be seen for the first time, starting his second project in white.It will be a duel marked by absences: the vast majority of the internationals who participated in the European Championship will not be there (perhaps Praise trip, the only one), there will also be those from the America's Cup and those who are currently in the Tokyo Olympics. And to this it should be added that neither Mariano, nor Mendy, nor Carvajal will be able to be at the disposal of Ancelotti, for physical reasons.

Thus, Madrid will probably start in Glasgow, against Rangers coached by Steven Gerrard, with Lunin in goal; defense of four for Odriozola, Nacho, Chust and Marcelo; Blanco as positional midfielder, seconded on the inside by Odegaard and Isco; and the lead for Lucas Vázquez on the right, Rodrygo on the left and Jovic on the leading edge.

Several players will wait for their opportunity on the bench; probably after the break Ancelotti will change the eleven members of the team to distribute the minutes, with some possible exceptions. A plethora of promising homegrown players (Arribas, Latasa, Miguel Gutiérrez, Gila, Luis López, Dotor ...) and perhaps also Alaba will be waiting at the bank. It is not certain that the Austrian will travel, but he has options. If he does, he will probably play for a minute.
