Zinedine Zidane has named the exact same line-up for Real Madrid’s Thursday night Supercopa de Espana semi-final as he did for the LaLiga Santander game away at Osasuna on Saturday.

It was a goalless draw in Pamplona last time out, but Zidane is trusting the same players and is once against starting Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio alongside Karim Benzema in attack.

With Dani Carvajal still out, it’s Lucas Vazquez who comes in at right-back again.

The complete Real Madrid line-up is as follows: Thibaut Courtois; Lucas Vazquez, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard.

The complete Athletic Club line-up is as follows: Unai Simon; Ander Capa, Unai Nunez, Inigo Martinez, Mikel Balenziaga; Oscar de Marcos, Dani Garcia, Unai Vencedor, Iker Muniain; Raul Garcia, Inaki Williams.
