Line-ups: Valencia-Madrid

Rafa Benitez names James Rodriguez on the bench as he takes Real Madrid back to his former club Valencia, who have Paco Alcacer leading the line.

James made headlines for an alleged high-speed chase late last week and doesn’t start at Mestalla, with Mateo Kovacic coming in.

Keylor Navas is in goal behind a back four of Danilo, Pepe, the returning Sergio Ramos and Marcelo.

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric join Kovacic in midfield, and it’s the BBC in attack – Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gary Neville meanwhile has Jaume Domench in goal and a back four of Antonio Barragan, who played under Benitez at Liverpool, Aymen Abdennour, Aderlan Santos and Lucas Orban.

Dani Parejo, Andre Gomes and Danilo form the midfield three with Joao Cancelo and Rodrigo De Paul flanking Alcacer.
