Real Madrid confirm squad for UEFA Super Cup final
Real Madrid have confirmed their travelling squad for Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Carlo Ancelotti's Champions League winners are looking to win their fifth Super Cup and tie Barcelona as the most successful side in the history of the fixture, but they'll have to go through Europa League winners Frankfurt to get there.
To aid Real's cause, Ancelotti has taken the entire first-team squad to the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland, including Castilla goalkeeper Luis Lopez, who has been promoted to the club's third-choice stopper this season.
Real Madrid squad
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Luis Lopez.
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Jesus Vallejo, Nacho, Alvaro Odriozola, Antonio Rudiger, Ferland Mendy.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Federico Valverde, Lucas Vazquez, Aurelien Tchouameni, Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga.
Forwards: Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Mariano.
Despite the presence of new signings Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni, Ancelotti has already hinted that he will give preference to the team that won the Champions League for this fixture.
"We should consider the lineup that won the Champions League, since they're the reason we have this chance to win a trophy," the boss said during the summer.
Should Ancelotti stick with that same lineup, then there would be very few surprises aside from the presence of midfielder Federico Valverde on the right wing ahead of the likes of Rodrygo or Eden Hazard.
