Line-ups: Sporting-Madrid

Sergio Ramos is Real Madrid’s only first-team regular that starts against Sporting Gijon in La Liga this afternoon.

Zinedine Zidane makes nine changes to the Madrid side that beat Bayern Munich 2-1 on Wednesday, beginning in goal, where Kiko Casilla comes in for Keylor Navas.

At the back, Danilo is introduced alongside Fabio Coentrao, the latter of whom makes his first League start for Los Blancos in two years.

Their midfield consists of James Rodriguez, Mateo Kovacic and Isco, while none of BBC are in action up top, with Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio flanking Alvaro Morata.

Sporting have not beaten Madrid at home since 1994, although they did stun the Santiago Bernabeu with a 1-0 win only six years ago.
