Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Alaves today

Carlo Ancelotti will use Real Madrid’s remaining La Liga fixtures as a means of rotating his squad and handing minutes to fringe players.

Los Blancos have already secured the league title and their sole focus now lies on 1 June when they take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final.

Manager Ancelotti rotated heavily at the weekend as his side thrashed the relegated Granada 4-0 and, although the Italian will want to ensure his key stars aren’t rusty for their trip to Wembley, Madrid’s projected starters for the final are unlikely to dominate the team sheet against Alaves on Tuesday night.

CM: Federico Valverde – Ancelotti could shuffle between his usual starters for the final midfield spot during Madrid’s remaining La Liga fixtures. Valverde and Toni Kroos should get a share of the minutes.

AM: Brahim Diaz – Diaz has enjoyed a very productive season as a fringe player. The wily playmaker has 17 goal contributions in 1806 minutes this term and scored twice in Madrid‘s win at the weekend.
