Please excuse me playing the following attackers out of position. Simply put, there were far too many world-class attackers to leave out. They are malleable players, and Carlo Ancelotti is an astute tactician, so any variation of this front three would work.

RW - Cristiano Ronaldo. To this day, Cristiano Ronaldo remains the all-time goal-scoring leader for Real Madrid in Champions League history. Cristiano Ronaldo is regarded by many as the greatest player of all-time but no matter where you stand on the debate, he is certainly the best player in Real Madrid history.

CF - Karim Benzema. A deadly striker who Carlo Ancelotti brought the best out of during his time at Real Madrid. The Frenchman won two Champions League honours under Carlo Ancelotti during his two different spells as head coach and certainly, he is one of the best strikers Ancelotti had the pleasure to deploy.

LW - Vinícius Júnior. Regarded by many as a future Ballon d'Or winner, Vinícius Júnior is one of the best players to represent the Real Madrid attack. Vinícius made the limelight early in his playing career and yet he continues to prosper. One of the star players during Carlo Ancelotti's second reign as Real Madrid head coach, the Brazilian Vinícius Júnior deserves a place in this lineup.
