Line ups: Kaka & Callejon start v Ajax

Kaka and Jose Callejon are the surprise inclusions in Real Madrid's starting XI for their Champions League visit to Ajax.

Kaka scored a hat trick in a friendly against Millionaros last week, and only made his first competitive appearance of the season in the 5-1 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.

Midfielders Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric are both benched as is the not 100 per cent Sami Khedira, whom Michael Essien replaces. Karim Benzema gets the nod ahead of Gonzalo Higuain up front.

The game kicks off at the Amsterdam Arena in just under an hours time.

Starting line ups:

Ajax: Vermeer, Blind, Alderweireld, Moisander, Van Rhijn; Poulsen, Eriksen, De Jong; Sana, Boerrigter, Babel

Real Madrid: Casillas; Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo; Essien, Xabi Alonso; Callejon, Kaka, Ronaldo; Benzema
