Real Madrid select youthful side for Melilla clash

Los Blancos are already 4-0 up on aggregate

Real Madrid have selected a youthful starting XI for their Copa del Rey clash against Melilla.

Jesús Vallejo, Fede Valverde, Vinícius Júnior and Javi Sánchez – who are all under 21 – have been handed opportunities to impress at the Bernabéu.

Elsewhere, Marcos Llorente, Álvaro Odriozola, Marco Asensio and Mariano have chances to push for first team football.

Keylor Navas replaces Thibaut Courtois in goal, with Dani Carvajal and Isco providing the only real seniority.
