According to Marca, Carlo Ancelotti will always start with Jude Bellingham and Eduardo Camavinga in his midfield.
The impression was made in pre-season when the two players started every match for Real Madrid during their tour of the United States.
Ancelotti has used Bellingham at the top of his diamond formation with Camavinga playing higher up the pitch ahead of Toni Kroos on the left.
The plan for Kroos and Luka Modric is for them to influence games from the bench and start a few games during the season.
Fede Valverde is also considered an important player in the squad and will start most of the matches.
However, his position on the right is very competitive and he can be dropped a few times.
Real Madrid will play their first game in La Liga in eight days when they face Athletic Bilbao.
