CONFIRMED: Chelsea line-up v Real Madrid

Chelsea take on Real Madrid in a friendly which Jose Mourinho dare not lose.

Chelsea take on Real Madrid imminently in the latest of their pre-season friendlies, but it is one with added spice.

Neither Chelsea or Real Madrid will want to lose, particularly Madrid who will probably feel they could have done without being re-united with a motivated Jose Mourinho so soon after sacking him.

On the opposite bench is a manager Roman Abramovich dismissed two years ago, Carlo Ancelotti, who swapped PSG and Zlatan for Madrid and Ronaldo.

The match takes place in Miami and is the final of the International Champions Cup and kicks off at 2.10am UK time. With a trophy up for grabs it is not to be missed.

Chelsea's line-up is as follows:

Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Terry, Cahill, Ramires, Van Ginkel, Lampard, Hazard, Oscar, Lukaku

Subs: Luiz, Essien, Mata, Torres, Mikel, Moses, Schurrle, De Bruyne, Schwarzer, Bertrand, Ba

Real Madrid line-up as follows:

Casillas, Arbeloa, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Khedira, Modric, Isco, Özil, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema.
