After conquering Europe against all odds last season, Real Madrid are finally set to kick off their new campaign. Carlo Ancelotti’s side will travel to the United States to participate in pre-season games, and the club officially announced the squad for the tour earlier today.

During their three-week stay overseas, Los Blancos will participate in three games. They will kick off their season with an El Clasico against Barcelona at the Allegiant Stadium on Saturday before travelling to face Club America on Tuesday.

The final game will be at the Rose Bowl Stadium when the Men in White face off against Juventus.

Karim Benzema is already in the US and will join his teammates directly before the Clasico. That said, his participation in the game against Barcelona is in doubt as the manager does not wish to risk any injuries to his star player.

New signings Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger have been included in the list and will be given a chance to prove their value. Given the impressive starts the duo have had in training, it would not be surprising to see both the players make their debut against Barcelona. 

Real Madrid will take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the first official game of the season in the UEFA Super Cup. Their league opener will be against newly promoted Almeria on 14th August.

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Luis López and Lucas Cañizares.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Rüdiger, Mendy, Odriozola and Tobías. Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Casemiro, Valverde, Lucas V., Tchouameni, Ceballos and Camavinga.
Attackers: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Rodrygo, Mariano and Latasa.

Following Barcelona’s awe-inspiring comeback win against Celta Vigo yesterday, the pressure is on Real Madrid to regain top spot in La Liga as they travel to Civitas Metropolitano to lock horns against Atletico Madrid.

The first Madrid derby of the season will not feature Vinicius Jr, who had to pull out of the travelling squad today due to a stomach bug.

Jude Bellingham has been given the green light, though, and is likely starting as the out and out striker for this game, with Joselu benched. The Englishman is joined by Rodrygo by his side, while Luka Modric plays behind them as the attacking midfielder.

Behind this trio, Toni Kroos has been handed the keys as the pivot, with Aurelien Tchouameni benched. Eduardo Camavinga starts alongside Federico Valverde as the central midfielders.

Lucas Vazquez fills in for the injured Daniel Carvajal at right-back, while Fran Garcia comes back to take over his left-back spot from Nacho. David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger round off the quadrant in central defence, screening Kepa in goal.

Confirmed Madrid XI: Kepa; Vazquez, Rudiger, Alaba, Garcia; Valverde, Kroos, Camavinga; Modric; Rodrygo, Bellingham
