Real Madrid released the squad list for Saturday's home match against Real Sociedad.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Coentrão, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Nacho.
Midfielders: Khedira, Kroos, James, Bale, Illarra, Isco and Lucas Silva.
Strikers: Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.

Although he was questionable with the flu, James Rodríguez was able to make the cut and will play on the right wing tomorrow, according to Ancelotti. That also means that Gareth Bale will play on the left, in what is a more natural position for him.

Lucas Silva was completing the pre-season with Cruzeiro when his signing was complete, but he will also be available and Ancelotti announced that he will try to give him some minutes. Considering that Real Madrid have a tough week ahead, with matches against Sevilla and Atlético de Madrid, it could be important for Ancelotti to make some rotations if Real Madrid have a decent lead against Real Sociedad.
