How will Zidane's XI against Real Sociedad look?

After the international break, La Liga returns and there is quite a lot of expectation over the eleven Real Madrid will field against Real Sociedad. Zidane has a compact formation, but his tendency to rotate could bring about surprises in the starting XI.

The French coach, even though he is not going through his best spell in the capital, is still the man who leads the side and he will have to make a squad for the next game. There are various things up in the air, especially related to Gareth Bale, but it seems like there is an initial plan. 

Courtois is expected to stay in goal. He has earned the post after many months and that is despite the questions that were asked of him not long ago. In the defence, Mendy will most likely start alongside Carvajal, Ramos and Varane, because the coach has been rotating them and now it is his turn. Marcelo started against Leganes. 

Casemiro, Kroos, Modric and Valverde will fight for it in midfield. The Uruguayan has gained the confidence of the coach and Casemiro seems untouchable. This is the part of the field where they are the most possible options, but it looks like it will be between these four. 

Up front, there are two big questions. Benzema and Hazard are practically set to start, but who will join them? Will it be Vinicius, Rodrygo or Bale? The Welshman is in the eye of the storm because of his comments and the celebration with the banner "Wales, Golf, Madrid". The two Brazilians are also fighting for one spot
