Los Blancos face a busy schedule on their return to action after the international break across both La Liga and UEFA Champions League action.

Carlo Ancelotti is still battling against injury issues in his squad and the Italian coach will need to balance his resources.

As part of his plan for City, Ancelotti is considering keeping France star Tchouameni in defence, following his recent impressive performances in a reshaped role.

As per the latest report from Mundo Deportivo, Tchouameni will start in defence against the Premier League champions, as a show of faith from Ancelotti.

Antonio Rudiger will partner Tchouameni, for the crunch tie, with the pair matched up for the 4-2 weekend win away at Osasuna.

Eder Militao is making progress in his recovery from a long term injury but the Brazilian will not be risked in such a high profile fixture.
