Line-ups: Madrid-Malmo

Rafa Benitez rings the changes for Real Madrid’s final Champions League group game against Malmo, though Cristiano Ronaldo is included.

Los Blancos can’t finish any lower than second in Group A, but Malmo have something to play for as they need to better Shakhtar Donetsk’s result at Paris Saint-Germain to slip into third and the Europa League.

The Swedes face a Madrid side with a number of alternates but it’s a strong attack as Ronaldo is joined by Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez, though Isco could be in attack with James in midfield.

Definitely in midfield are Casemiro and Mateo Kovacic, with a back four comprised of Danilo, Pepe, Nacho and Alvaro Arbeloa. Kiko Casilla takes the gloves.

Real Madrid: Casilla; Danilo, Pepe, Nacho, Arbeloa; Casemiro, Kovacic, James; Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo

Subs: Ruben; Kroos, Marcelo, Lucas Vazquez, Jese, Cheryshev, Llorente

Malmo: Wiland, Tinnerholm, Yotun, Carvalho, Rakip; Lewicki, Adu, Arnason, Sana, Berget; Djurdic

Subs: Andersson, Konate, Brorsson, Kroon, Wolff Eikrem, Rodic, Mehmeti
