CM - Eduardo Camavinga. Came off the bench for around half an hour at the weekend, so he will be fresh to play in the 2nd leg against Man City. Camavinga had an okay performance in the opening round but he will hope to have more of a mark on this game.

CM - Toni Kroos. The Germany international was completely rested at the weekend so he will be fresh to start in this one. Against Mallorca, Luka Modric impressed in the midfield but Kroos will have the advantage of starting from the opening whistle against Man City.

CM - Federico Valverde. Fede scored a wonder goal in the reverse fixture so if he scores another one even half as impressive, he will be satisifed. The Uruguay international has been a mainstay in the Real Madrid lineup this season so having played the full 90 in two matches last week, he is expected to do the same against Man City on Wednesday evening.
