It's odd to think Carlo Ancelotti was at Everton a year-and-a-half ago, but the old master is now looking to further enshrine the latest chapter in his storied legacy as one of the all-time greats, having enjoyed domestic and European delights last term.

A handful of new faces are through the door, several old hands have left and Karim Benzema remains propped at the front of an attack that can beat anyone on their day - and they'll be heavily favoured to add to their stacked continental legacy when they walk out in Helsinki this week.

Predicted Madrid starting XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.

A mid-table finish in the Bundesliga last term disguised Frankfurt's frailty, as they poured all their efforts into the pursuit of European glory - and ultimately reaped the rich dividends, with silverware to show and entrance into the Champions League as an added bonus.

But a 6-1 drubbing to open the new campaign mere days ago at the hands of Bayern Munich has ruthlessly exposed the gulf in class they have to overcome in order to topple the Champions League holders - but given Madrid's propensity for underperformance as much as tight-fought victory, they will still give themselves a chance.

Predicted Frankfurt starting XI: Trapp; Toure, Ndicka, Tuta; Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz; Gotze, Kamada; Borre.
