This season, Real Madrid are having a roller coaster ride, losing games to weak teams, losing the chasing to barcelona for La Liga title this year, so Los Blancos come into this match with the chips on their shoulder, losing to Mallorca last weekend, and the looming list of injuries hurting the team. Despite that, Ancelotti will still primed his starting XI to remain the heavy favorites, although the momentum was on Al-Ahly, after getting conditioned by winning the first two games. However, if Real Madrid performed a little bit underwhelm, then the Egyptian side will take this advantage and cruise the game into their favor.
Al Ahly Starting XI (4-1-4-1): Shenawi, Hany, Matwalli, Abdelmonem, Maaloul, Dieng, Kahraba, Afsha, Sulaya, Mohamed, Tau.
Real Madrid Starting XI (4-3-3): Lunin, Odriozola, Rudiger, Nacho, Camavinga, Kroos, Ceballos, Modric, Asensio, Diaz, Rodrygo.
