After watching Barcelona crash and burn throughout the summer, Real Madrid will have yet more optimism going into the 2017/18 season.

The Champions League and La Liga holders had a successful summer, bringing in Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos to further strengthen their already impressive squad.

At this moment in time, no other side in Europe can match Los Blancos' ridiculous attacking lineup, with the likes of Marco Asensio and Isco giving the French manager some serious selection dilemma's.

However, the Spaniards will be useful in helping Real compete on multiple fronts and as they have so many forward-thinking players in their squad, we have picked four different ways they could lineup this season.

The likes of Ceballos and Lucas Vasquez don't make it into any of them, further underlining the brute attacking power they possess.



On current form, this is perhaps the best side available to Real, with Asensio and Isco virtually undroppable at the moment.

The crafty Spaniard's have excelled in wide attacking roles and would create a plethora of chances for the main man, who is certainly going to be used more as a centre-forward this season.

Karim Benzema is good, but Cristiano Ronaldo is simply the best.



With Gareth Bale out of form, Zidane may well look to ditch the Welshman in favour of Isco.

Ronaldo would be deployed in his natural left-wing role, with Benzema leading the line. The flexibility in this lineup would be deadly and it is the one that served them so well in the Champions League final.

Tried and tested, it is likely we will see this selection on a regular basis.



Now, in games of lower difficulty, Zidane may look to get experimental and forge an attacking lineup that on paper, is simply mouth-watering.

Ditching his main pragmatic force, Casemiro, Toni Kroos would move into a more defensive role, with Isco, Luka Madrid and Asensio ahead of him looking to wreak havoc.

This would allow Ronaldo and Benzema to operate as a partnership up top, which could be devastating.



Another selection that could be deployed in games where Real will look to destroy smaller opposition.

Bale would come in on the right, Asensio would move to the left and Ronaldo up top, while the crafty Isco would slot into a midfield three.

Against bigger sides, it may be too attacking but in some La Liga games, it has four or five goals written all over it.
