Real Madrid haven't gone with any surprises tonight in the first leg of their 2011 UEFA Champions League semifinal tie with Barcelona, as Jose Mourinho has selected a lineup in the same 4-3-3 formation that he used to defeat Barcelona in the second game of this four Clasico series, the Copa Del Rey final.
Gonzalo Higuain is still not first choice for Mourinho, as he has opted to play Cristiano Ronaldo as a central striker. Ricardo Carvalho is suspended, while Sami Khedira is injured. This means that Raul Albiol and Lassana Diarra make rare starts in a huge match. However, the fact that those players are backups just tells you how incredibly deep Real Madrid are. Here's the lineup and substitutions.
