Line-ups: Madrid mix youth & experience

Real Madrid have gone with a mix of youth and experience when they face Ajax this evening in the Champions League.

Karmi Benzema will play as the lone front man.

For Ajax meanwhile, Los Blancos transfer target Christian Eriksen starts in centre midfield, with fellow Dane Viktor Fischer in a front-three.

Real Madrid: Adan; Nacho, Varane, Carvalho, Coentrao; Khedira, Modric; Callejon, Kaka, Ronaldo; Benzema

Ajax: Vermeer; Alderweireld, Moisander, Blind, Van Rhijn; C. Poulsen, Eriksen, De Jong; Boerrigter, Hoesen, Fischer
