Real Madrid will start the new season with an away clash against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

Following the tour of United States, Real Madrid have returned to training and are getting set to face Bilbao.

Carlo Ancelotti is already working on his squad and his best starting XI for this weekend.

However, three Real Madrid players will miss this game through injury.

Arda Guler, Dani Ceballos and Ferland Mendy are currently dealing with injuries, and will be unavailable for the weekend.

According to a report on Marca, Carlo Ancelotti has almost figured out his starting line-up against Bilbao.

New signing Fran Garcia will make his debut with a start at San Mames, in place of the injured Mendy.

Marca also claim that Aurelien Tchouameni will be a starter. The young midfielder lost his place at some point last season, but Carlo Ancelotti is said to be impressed by his newfound form.

Following Real Madrid’s defensive struggle in pre-season, Ancelotti believes Tchouameni is capable of stepping up and adjusting while pressing. 

Summer signing Jude Bellingham is sure of his No.10 role, while Eduardo Camavinga is also being tipped to start.
