2. Vinicius Junior

Alongside Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior was the recipient of big praise from Carlo Ancelotti and it is clear to see why. The Brazil international has been one of the better performers for Real Madrid this season and the UEFA Champions League is a competition which has served him well.

In the Champions League, Vinicius Junior has netted an impressive three goals and provided four assists (two of those coming in the first leg against Man City). Therefore, he could run riot in Munich.

3. Rodrygo

Completing the iconic Brazilian duo in attack is Rodrygo. The standout performer in the Man City tie and one of the key reasons why Real Madrid ended up progressing to the semifinal, Rodrygo simply has to start against Bayern Munich.

His ability to pick out pockets of space could be the deciding factor, rendering him as a non-negotiable starter for Carlo Ancelotti.
