Line-ups: La Real-Madrid

Alvaro Morata starts for Real Madrid against Real Sociedad with Zinedine Zidane also giving Marco Asensio a run-out from the start.

Los Blancos go with Kiko Casilla in goal as Keylor Navas is not yet fit and a back four of Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo.

Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Mateo Kovacic form the midfield three and it’s Morata through the middle of the attack with Gareth Bale and Asensio on either side, Cristiano Ronaldo not yet recovered from the injury suffered in the Euro 2016 Final.

Also missing are Pepe, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema, while James Rodriguez and Isco only make the bench, where they are joined by Castilla forward Mariano.

La Real meanwhile have Gero Rulli after his convoluted transfer involving holding club Deportivo Maldonado and Manchester City and a back four of Joseba Zaldua, Carlos Martinez, Inigo Martinez and Yuri Berchiche.

David Zurutuza, Markel Bergara and former Madrid man Asier Illarramendi will anchor the midfield with David Concha and Mikel Oyarzabal offering support to Juanmi, the ex-Malaga forward signed from Southampton this summer.
