Real Madrid stars Gareth Bale and Luka Modric have been included in the Spanish side's starting line up to face Tottenham in the Audi Cup this afternoon.
The pair were both fans' favourites at White Hart Lane prior to their lucrative moves to the Bernabeu in 2013 and 2012 respectively, and will be plotting a route to victory over Mauricio Pochettino's team at the Allianz Arena.
Rafa Benitez has named a strong side that also includes World Cup star James Rodriguez, defender Sergio Ramos and talented Spanish midfielder Isco.
Meanwhile, Spurs have also named a formidable line up with striker Harry Kane set to lead the club's frontline ahead of a midfield trident of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Mousa Dembele.
Eric Dier, who has previously spoken of his desire to be used as a centre back, is set to be deployed in a central midfield role alongside new signing Dele Alli.
Michel Vorm deputises for Hugo Lloris in goal, whose fitness is still in doubt due to a fracture wrist he picked up during the close season.
