It's official. Ramos and Bale are back with the squad after spending two weeks out with injuries. Furthermore, those two players are expected to start against Atlético as well.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Carvajal and Arbeloa.
Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Cheryshev, Isco and Bale.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez and Jesé.

Other than that there are no surprises in this squad list. Benítez included Vázquez, Cheryshev and Jesé and the Spanish manager will have to send one of those players to the stands to make the final list for the game.

Benítez will have to choose between Kovacic and Isco for one spot and the Spanish playmaker might be the one getting the nod, according to reports. Either way, Real Madrid will have some good tools on the bench in case they have to turn things around and fight for a comeback.
