With the new season fast approaching, maxbet Julen Lopetegui faces the sort of tactical headache every manager could only dream of as he looks to obtain the best from a star-studded Real Madrid side.Ahead of their UEFA Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid, we take a look at four ways the coach can solve the problem of having seven candidates for the six midfield and attacking spots.
This would be the most revolutionary option as it consists of discarding with what has been considered untouchable over the past few seasons. Casemiro has provided balance in the centre of the park, maxbet  but as Lopetegui looks to improve the side's control of the ball in midfield and the ability to press higher up the pitch, relegating the Brazilian in favour of a midfield trio of Isco, Toni Kross and Luka Modric is an option worth considering.
Real Madrid are clear that Marco Asensio needs to push on this season and it wouldn't be as easy to bench him as in other seasons. However, Lopetegui might feel he has to do that and play a more familiar-looking XI.This, though, would see Real Madrid lose directness and speed. Plus, Asensio has also shown he can shoot well from around the area. maxbet
