Real full strength for City

Jose Mourinho has named a full-strength Real Madrid squad to face Manchester City in Tuesday night’s Champions League opener.

Last season’s beaten semi-finalists welcome Roberto Mancini’s outfit to the Santiago Bernabeu defending an impressive record for opening competition games at home.

Despite the team’s troubles in the League, Mourinho reflected today that he is unlikely to change too much in terms of the line-up to face the English, and that is reflected in his squad selection, which is at full strength.

Real Madrid squad to face Manchester City: Casillas, Adan, Jesus, Ramos, Coentrao, Marcelo, Pepe, Arbeloa, Varane, Albiol, Khedira, Kaka, Ozil, Xabi Alonso, Essien, Modric, Callejon, Di Maria, Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain, Benzema
