Line-ups: Real Madrid-San Lorenzo

James Rodriguez returns to the Real Madrid line-up for tonight's Club World Cup final with San Lorenzo, Asier Illarramendi dropping out.

Los Blancos steamrolled Cruz Azul in the last four to reach the Marrakech spectacle, but Carlo Ancelotti has made just the one change from the team which served him so well on Tuesday in the form of the Colombian, who has shaken off a hamstring injury.

The Copa Libertadores champions, meanwhile, needed extra time to dispatch Auckland City, and they remain unchanged from their semi-final affair with the New Zealanders on Wednesday.

The match has been overshadowed by reports Cristiano Ronaldo was unhappy with his failure to score against the Mexicans – a claim denied by his Coach – and that San Lorenzo requested a neutral referee to take charge of proceedings.

Portuguese official Pedro Proenca was believed to have been assigned the fixture initially, but he has been pipped to the chase by Guatemalan Walter Lopez.
