Carlo Ancelotti, the seasoned head coach of Real Madrid, emphasized during Monday’s pre-match press conference that he won’t be rotating the lineup indiscriminately, highlighting the team’s commitment to maintaining their winning momentum. Despite having secured qualification, Ancelotti’s decision to field a relatively stronger squad underlines the club’s dedication to excellence.

One notable change in the lineup will be the presence of Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, as confirmed by Ancelotti. This strategic move signals the coach’s intent to keep the team sharp and focused, leveraging the depth of talent within the squad.

The clash in Berlin follows a weekend draw for Real Madrid against Real Betis, leaving Ancelotti’s side eager to rectify the result. The setback against Betis serves as a reminder of the challenges that even the most successful teams can face, reinforcing the need for a disciplined and determined performance in the upcoming Champions League fixture.

As the final whistle approaches, Real Madrid finds itself in a unique position – assured of progress but driven by the pursuit of perfection. The clash against Union Berlin is not merely a formality; it is a chance for the Spanish giants to showcase their dominance and set the tone for the challenges that lie ahead in the knockout stages.

For Ancelotti and his men, every match is an opportunity to assert their supremacy on the European stage, and the encounter in Berlin promises to be another chapter in Real Madrid’s storied journey in pursuit of Champions League glory.

Expected XI

Kepa, Lucas Vazquez, Alaba, Nacho, Mendy, Modric, Valverde, Ceballos, Bellingham, Rodrygo and Joselu.
