Club World Cup line-ups: Kashima Antlers-Real Madrid

Only Casemiro is missing from Real Madrid's XI for their Club World Cup semi-final against Kashima Antlers this afternoon.

Casemiro has been out for the past month with an ankle injury but while Marcos Llorente continues to deputise in defensive midfield, the Brazilian is back among the substitutes.

Elsewhere, Gareth Bale has recovered from his own ankle problem to join Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez up top and Thibaut Courtois is picked ahead of Keylor Navas in goal.

Madrid beat Kashima 4-2 after extra time to lift the 2016 Club World Cup, while the winner at the Zayed Sports City Stadium will face Emirati champions Al-Ain, who stunned River Plate on penalties.
