Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Casemiro will start tonight against Champions League opponents Galatasaray.

The Brazilian has impressed Ancelotti in recent weeks and earns his place tonight.

"He's was in good form against Almería and he can play as a starter. I really like how Xabi and Illarra are working because they provide balance and possession. Xabi Alonso is coming off a major injury and perhaps we have to think about resting him tomorrow and having Casemiro play," said Ancelotti.
