APOEL Nicosia Vs. Real Madrid, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

If APOEL Nicosia wants to give everyone a tough decision to make in terms of their viewing during the second legs of the quarterfinals, they're going to have to post a good result today. If Real Madrid is able to pull off a victory in Cyprus, there won't be much of a reason to watch the second leg at the Bernabeu. APOEL's a very good defensive team and a very good counter-attacking team, so this might not be a walkover. Here are the lineups.

APOEL Nicosia starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Dionosis Chiotis; William Boaventura, Paulo Jorge, Marcelo Oliveira, Savvas Poursaitidis; Nektarious Alexandrou, Helio Pinto, Nuno Morais, Costas Charalambides; Ivan Trickovski; Ailton.

Substitutes from: Urko Pardo, Helder Sousa, Kaka, Aldo Adorno, Athos Soloumou, Marcinho, Esteban Solari.

Real Madrid starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Iker Casillas, Fabio Coentrao, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Alvaro Arbeloa; Nuri Sahin, Sami Khedira; Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Karim Benzema; Gonzalo Higuain.

Substitutes from: Antonio Adan, Marcelo, Raul Albiol, Raphael Varane, Kaka, Estaban Granero, Hamit Altintop.

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 9:45 p.m. local time from GSP Stadium in Nicosia. You can catch the game on FOX Sports Net regional affiliates in the USA, Sportsnet World in Canada and Sky Sports 4 in the UK.
