Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will have a strong squad to choose from on Sunday evening, as the Spanish giants round off their short pre-season with a glamour friendly against AC Milan.

Toni Kroos will be unavailable for selection through injury, while Alvaro Odriozola has tested positive for coronavirus, but a number of the team's key players are now back in training ahead of the new season.

Karim Benzema was recently absent due to a positive coronavirus test, but the France international has now returned to training and had been expected available for this weekend's contest; the forward, though, has ultimately been left out of the squad.

Eden Hazard's fitness has allegedly made a positive impression on the club's coaching staff this summer, but the Belgian will also not be involved in this match, opening the door for Mariano Diaz to start at centre-forward.

Elsewhere, there is likely to be a spot in the middle of the defence for new signing David Alaba, with Eder Militao, Nacho and Marcelo potentially making up the Spanish team's defence.

Martin Odegaard has remained with Real Madrid this summer despite the speculation surrounding his future, and he could line up in midfield alongside Luka Modric and Casemiro.

Gareth Bale is also available, having returned to the Bernabeu following a loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur, but Rodrygo might be given the nod to start alongside Mariano and Vinicius Junior.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup: Courtois; Nacho, Alaba, Militao, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Odegaard; Rodrygo, Mariano, Vinicius
