Gonzalo Higuaín, Fàbio Coentrao and Kaka' will miss Wednesday's friendly match against Olympique Lyonnais. Real Madrid released the squad list without Varane, Alonso, Pipita, Coentrao, Kaka', and the International players who took part in the Confederations Cup -Casillas, Ramos, Arbeloa and Marcelo-.
This is the list:
CONVOCATORIA DEL REAL MADRID:
Goalkeepers: Diego López, Adán and Jesús.
Defenders: Pepe, Carvajal, Mateos, Casado and Nacho.
Midfielders: Khedira, Özil, Cheryshev, Di María, Isco, Illarra, Casemiro, Quini and Modric.
Strikers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Morata.
With Gonzalo Higuaín signing his contract with Napoli really soon, Coentrao and Kaka's absence are not that easy to explain. The Portuguese player didn't take part in some training sessions due to personal matters, but to miss a preseason game in which Marcelo won't be able to take part is an entirely different thing. Kaka' could have a minor injury. Or maybe they are about to be sold, everybody will just have to wait until Ancelotti speaks in press conference after the game.
