Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and David Alaba were all afforded minutes off to some degree as Madrid wrapped up the La Liga title at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Casemiro, who missed the first-leg loss against Manchester City, was deployed at centre-back in that win and could return to a more natural midfield berth for Wednesday’s crunch second-leg.
Ancelotti confirmed Alaba should be fit enough to partner Eder Militao in defence, while Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy will surely return to operate on either side.
Gareth Bale, unsuprisingly, missed the title celebrations with a back spasm so seems even more unlikely to even feature on the bench, while Rodrygo will be hoping to start alongside Benzema and Vinicius Jr.
Champions League royalty, the champions of Spain need all the experience they can get to turn things around.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Vinicius Jr, Benzema, Rodrygo
