UEFA Champions League - Zidane leaves three key players out vs Man City

Zinedine Zidane is known to shift his lineups according to the team he is set to face, but this time fans are not as convinced after the club revealed the team's starting lineup against Manchester City.

Known to be loyal to those players that helped him win three UEFA Champions League titles in a row, Zidane has always backed players such as Marcelo, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos or Luka Modric regardless of their form. Well, today two of those players will be on the bench for the crucial tie, as Marcelo and Kroos were left out of the starting XI.

Added to those names, Zizou chose to give Vinicius a starting nod over Gareth Bale, the man that scored two key goals during Los Blancos' last UCL win against Liverpool. 

Here's how Real Madrid will kick off their clash against Manchester City.
