La Liga is about to return, and Real Madrid will do so with a familiar face on the bench. Ancelotti already spent two seasons in the white team in the 2013/2014 season and in the 2014/2015 season, where he reaped great successes, including the Champions League. In his first stage, he made his debut in La Liga against Betis, with a 2-1 victory for the Whites, but do you remember the eleven he played?
The starting goalkeeper was Diego López, a great goalkeeper who still plays for Espanyol. The Galician goalkeeper started the season as a starter ahead of Casillas, but the Madrid captain would end up regaining ownership later.
A young Carvajal was returning from his loan from Germany with a big poster, and Ancelotti gave him the confidence in the form of ownership from the start.
The Sevillian had established himself as a center-back in the last stage of Mourinho and Ancelotti did not hesitate to continue counting on him as a starting center-back.
Pepe had become an essential player in Madrid thanks to his great competitive character, defensive ability and aggressiveness. The couple he made with Ramos is memorable.
The Brazilian had also settled in the eleven as a left back after improving his defensive side. Marcelo became one of the best full-backs in the world.
The German was the support of the white team in the midfield until the arrival of Casemiro. Then he was transferred to Juventus, but at Real Madrid he left very good feelings and reaped great successes.
The Croatian had been a signing questioned by many in the previous season, but with Ancelotti he shone and was already a starter on the first day of La Liga.
Isco was transferred from Malaga after shining at an early age with the Andalusian team. Ancelotti gave him confidence and the Andalusian midfielder responded with a good performance.
The German was a key player at Real Madrid. With his quality he assisted Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, who swelled to score goals while he played with them.
How could it be otherwise, Cristiano Ronaldo was a starter in that game. With Ancelotti, the Portuguese legend began with Real Madrid, winning the first of the four Champions League that he would achieve with the whites.
After a tough competition against Higuain for being the starting striker, he managed to take over the title, and already on the first day he was lined up from the start.
