But starting tonight are Raphael Varane and Marcelo, who come into the backline, with Luka Modric and Asier Illarramendi also getting starting places.
Angel di Maria, Sami Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are all in the starting XI with Iker Casillas back in goal for almost nine months and Diego Lopez on the bench.
The fans have been calling for Alvaro Morata to get a chance, perhaps for Benzema, but the latter remains the first choice striker at the moment.
Gareth Bale is out injured with a problem on his left thigh.
