Keylor Navas keeps goal and Danilo and Marcelo round out the back four in what is the final game of 2015 for the two teams.
Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Luka Modric get midfield berths, with the BBC together in attack.
La Real have Gero Rulli in goal and a defence made up of Carlos Martinez, Aritz Elustondo, Inigo Martinez and Yuri Berchiche.
Xabi Prieto looks like starting on the right of midfield, with former Madrid man Asier Illarramendi inside next to Markel Bergara and another ex-Blanco, Sergio Canales, also involved from the off.
A third midfielder once on the books at Santiago Bernabeu, Esteban Granero, was ruled out early on Wednesday through injury.
