Real Madrid players 2022/23: Updated squad, jersey numbers for La Liga, UEFA Champions League, Copa del Rey & Supercopa

Another big season awaits Real Madrid in 2022-23 as they look to defend their La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles.

Carlo Ancelotti led the team back to European glory in 2021/22, with Karim Benzema almost unstoppable in front of goal.

Despite being linked with moves for Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, Real Madrid have had a quiet off-season in the transfer market, only bringing in Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni.

A host of players have left the Santiago Bernabeu over the summer, with the likes of Gareth Bale, Icso and Marcelo all allowed to leave.

After so much success last season, Ancelotti seems happy with his squad and simply wanted to consolidate for the new season.

Real Madrid squad and shirt numbers for 2022-23

Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni are the only signings at Real Madrid so far for the 2022-23 season.

Rudiger, who arrived on a free transfer from Chelsea, has been given the number 22 shirt while Tchouameni will wear the number 18 on his back.

Captain Karim Benzema remains the club’s No.9 while Thibaut Courtois also comfortably keeps his No.1 shirt.

Real Madrid managers and coaching staff

Ancelotti will start another season as Real Madrid manager in 2022-23.

The Italian returned to the club last season when he won La Liga for the first time and became the first manager to win Europe’s top five leagues.

Ancelotti is once again joined by his son Davide, who has also worked with his father at Bayern Munich, Napoli and Everton.

How will Real Madrid line up this season?

With few major squad changes in the summer, Real Madrid are expected to line up similar to 2021/22.

Ancelotti favored a 4-3-3 formation last season and used it in the club’s 2022/23 season-opening Supercup win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

The lineup and players used are expected to remain largely the same this season.

However, the likes of Eden Hazard, Eduardo Camavinga and Rudiger will be keen to push for a regular starting spot as the season progresses.

Estimated line-up of Real Madrid: Courtouis – Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
