Another super strong team has been picked by manager Carlo Ancelotti for tonight’s contest and Italian boss believes this is the perfect opponent to get their season back on track.

The unsettled Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema all start again in a very powerful attack.

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will both play control roles with Ancelotti hoping to use the pair to dictate the play from midfield.

Among the players on the substitute bench are on loan Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, along with Fabio Coentrao, Alvaro Arbeloa and Isco.

Fabian Frei is among the starters for the visiting Basel, so too are Mohamed El-Nenny, Marco Streller and Derlis Gonzalez.
