Carlo Ancelotti lines up without Real Madrid’s new signings for the UEFA Super Cup clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni are competing for spots in the starting XI with the Spanish side’s stars who lifted both the LaLiga and Champions League trophies last season.

As predicted, Ancelotti has gone with the exact same team that started against Liverpool in the Champions League final when Los Blancos step out in Finland tonight.

Eder Militao and David Alaba are once again Real’s first-choice central defensive pairing, in front of Thibaut Courtois and flanked by the duo of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy.

Luka Modric, Casemiro and Toni Kroos start in midfield ahead of both Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

In attack, Karim Benzema will be Madrid’s go-to guy for goals in 2022-23 with Federico Valverde holding onto his position on the right flank, opposite Vinicius Jr.

That XI lined up both against Liverpool in Paris and in the 2-0 friendly win over Juventus in their final pre-Super Cup friendly.

Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric, Valverde; Benzema, Vinicius Jr
