When asked whether Courtois, Militao and Guler would start he responded: “Yes, he’s fine. Tomorrow he will play after a long time. It’s good news that he’s back, just like Militao. He can contribute, he’s fine, he’s very excited. We’re delighted that he’s back.”

Guler will start his second league game in a row after getting his full debut in La Liga last week against Real Sociedad.

The Turkish international put on an impressive performance scoring the winning goal in the 1-0 victory.

Guler was praised for his display and managed to win the confidence of Ancelotti who has given him his second start in a row.

Courtois’ return is a major boost for Los Blancos, marking his first appearance of the season after a long-term injury.

Andriy Lunin will retain his starting role in goal for the upcoming Champions League second leg against Bayern Munich. This clarifies speculation suggesting Courtois might challenge Lunin for the European tie.

When questioned about potential changes for the second leg and Militao’s involvement against Cadiz, Ancelotti provided a clear response with the lineup announcement.

The full starting lineup is as follows:

Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Fran Garcia, Camavinga, Modric, Ceballos, Guler, Brahim, Joselu.

Cadiz starting XI (TBC): Ledesma, Iza, Fali, Chust, Javi, Alex, Alcaraz, Navarro, Sobrino, Ramos, Juanmi.
