Real Madrid started their preparation yesterday for the Supercopa where coach Zinedine Zidane is thinking of rotating his squad with some minor changes.
With Luka Modric injured it means that Mateo Kovacic will start but the most notable decision could be to play Theo at left back with Marcelo having a natural replacement for the first time in two years.
The new number 15 gives Zidane the chance to give more breaks to Marcelo while at the same time Theo can show his pace and skill to good effect at the Camp Nou.
Theo has fitted in well at Real and Zidane has been pleased with the way he has adapted with some good performances in pre-season matches, and so he is well-placed for a starting place.
Zidane’s plan is to play Theo at the Camp Nou and then Marcelo in the return leg three days later although he will make a final decision after the last training session before Sunday’s game.
