While the Premier League is kicking off their season, other leagues are still playing friendlies. That includes Real Madrid and Fiorentina who are playing in a friendly in Poland.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti named his 23 man roster for the game:
Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Nacho
Midfielders: Khedira, Kroos, James Rodríguez, Xabi Alonso, Bale, Di María, Illarra, Medrán, Burgui and Lucas Vázquez
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema
Now the game is just a friendly and a tune up game, so some of the bigger names might not get a whole lot of action. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t play in the United States preseason tour as he tried to get back to 100 percent health. Ronaldo did play in the UEFA Super Cup, scoring two goals.
