Real Madrid released the squad list for Wednesday's match at the Parc des Princes against PSG. Rafa Benítez included both Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric on the list and Gareth Bale couldn't make the cut after picking up an injury during the home game against Levante.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Cheryshev, Isco and Marcos Llorente.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lucas Vázquez, Jesé and Mayoral.

Pepe, Carvajal, James and Benzema are also injured and they will not be able to help their squad in this first match against the French club. All things considered, fans should expect Rafa Benítez to start both Casemiro and Kovacic alongside Modric and Kroos. That would improve Real's midfield and defensive cohesion against one of the top teams in European football.

Jesé will be hoping to start in Benzema's spot, but Benítez has only started him twice this season.
