A 4-3-3 would see Nacho Fernandez at right-back and Lucas Vazquez in an attacking trident, whereas a 3-5-2 would have the former switching to central defence with the latter as a right wing-back.
Karim Benzema will spearhead the attack and will be assisted by Vinicius Junior, with Fede Valverde joining Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in a midfield trio.
Marco Asensio, Isco and Rodrygo Goes are all excluded from the start, with Casemiro also suspended.
