Cruz Azul v Real Madrid

Club World Cup semi-final 

Grand Stade de Marrakech, Morocco

Tuesday 16 December 19:30 GMT kick-off

Carlo Ancelotti has named a very strong Real Madrid side for tonight's Club World Cup semi-final clash against Mexican outfit Cruz Azul, which has been moved from Rabat to Marrakech after heavy rain in Morocco over the weekend.

The Spanish giants - who have won 20 consecutive games in all competitions - are without  injured midfielders James Rodriguez and Luka Modric, but will be looking to book their place in next Saturday's final versus San Lorenzo or Auckland City with victory on Tuesday evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been picked from the start, and will line up alongside Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Isco in a fearsome looking forward line, as the Portuguese superstar attempts to add to the incredible haul of 32 goals he's scored in the past 23 games.

Real Madrid starting XI: Casillas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Illarramendi, Isco, Kroos; Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Subs: Navas, Pacheco, Varane, Coentrao, Khedira, Hernandez, Arbeloa, Nacho, Jese, Medran.

Cruz Azul starting XI: Corona, Pinto, Rodriguez, Dominguez, Torrado, Pavone, Giminez, Rojas, Flores, Bernardello, Formica.

Subs: TBC
