UEFA Champions League: Lineups Confirmed
Here we go everyone!
Lyon (4-2-3-1): LLORIS; REVEILLERE, LOVREN, CRIS, CISSOKHO; TOULALAN, KALLSTROM; DELGADO, GOURCUFF, BASTOS; GOMIS
Real Madrid (4-2-3-1): CASILLAS; SERGIO RAMOS, PEPE, CARVALHO, ARBELOA; KHEDIRA, XABI ALONSO; DI MARÍA, ÖZIL, CRISTIANO, ADEBAYOR
Interesting choice from Mourinho--he's coming out on the attack to start the game: rather than playing the 4-3-3 with the Lass-Alonso-Khedira trivot, he's going with his classic 4-2-3-1 with a Khedira-Xabi pivot. This frees up Angel di Maria to run the left wing, providing more attacking punch, but less cover in the back.
He seems to be making up for this by starting Alvaro Arbeloa at left back over perennial favorite Marcelo, who tends to push forward to provide more attacking options.
