Players to watch
At Real Madrid, Rodrygo underwent a transformation into a more assured player, and he is now gradually becoming an important member of the club. He is a surprising player who can shift the course of a game with his explosive runs and dribbles thanks to his confidence in his ability to outrun defenders.
Ighalo is prepared to display his striking prowess since he is aware of how it feels to compete against elite European players. With eight goals in 12 games for Al-Hilal in the Saudi League, the former Manchester United star is the team’s most valuable player due to his familiarity.
Injury and team news
Hazard has once again sustained an injury, and Real Madrid will likely be without Eder Militao, Lucas Vasquez, Ferland Mendy, and Karim Benzema.
Al-Hilal, on the other hand, will only miss out on Yasser Al-Shahrani because of an injury.
Real Madrid predicted lineup (4-3-3):
Courtois; Carvajal, Nacho, Rudiger, Alaba; Kroos, Tchouameni, Modric; Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr.
Al-Hilal predicted lineup (4-3-3):
Al-Mayouf; N. Al-Dawsari, Al-Bulaihi, Jang, Abdulhamid; S. Al-Dawsari, Cuellar, Vietto; Carrillo, Ighalo, Marega
Real Madrid is having a difficult time right now, and Al Hilal has proven they are ready to challenge for the European Championship, so this match promises to be exciting.
