Line-ups: Madrid-Gremio

Gareth Bale is only a substitute for Real Madrid, who name a historic XI for their Club World Cup Final against Gremio.

Bale scored the winner during Madrid's 2-1 victory over Al Jazira in the semi-finals, but that isn't enough for the Welshman to replace Karim Benzema or Isco, both of whom have tailed off in recent weeks.

Other than that, Zinedine Zidane names the same team that thrashed Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League Final last season, including Sergio Ramos, who will play through the pain barrier.

Los Blancos are looking to be crowned world champions for a record sixth time against a Gremio side without Barcelona target Arthur, who is out with an ankle injury.
