Line-ups: Madrid-Copenhagen

Carlo Ancelotti has given a first start of the season to Raphael Varane as Real Madrid prepare to face Copenhagen.

The French defender has been out with a host in niggling injuries since recovering from a knee operation over the summer, but the Italian tactician has deemed the youngster fit enough for the Champions League.

Elsewhere, Iker Casillas returns between the posts, as Angel Di Maria, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo make up the top three. Marcelo also returns from injury, but Isco has been rested for the match at Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid: Casillas; Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo; Illarramendi, Modric, Khedira; Di María, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema

Copenhagen: Wiland, Jacobsen, Bengtsson, Mellberg, R. Sigurdsson, Claudemir, Delaney, Gíslason, N. Jørgensen, Braaten, Toutouh
