The attention-grabbing news for Madrid is that Ronaldo, who has netted at least one goal in each of his last 11 Champions League games, starts up top, with both Benzema and Bale on the bench. The hosts, meanwhile, have veteran wingers Robben and Ribery on the flanks, with Muller and James tasked with offering Lewandowski support.
