Real Madrid released the squad list for the Liga BBVA game against Eibar tomorrow afternoon.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.

Defenders: Pepe, Nacho, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Cheryshev and Lazo.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Lucas Vázquez.

As expected, Marcelo, Varane and Sergio Ramos will all miss the game with injuries, while Isco is suspended after the red card he saw last Saturday.

Kovacic played well against Shakhtar and it will be interesting to see if Benítez gives him another chance to feature in the starting XI, although Kroos will most likely be the chosen one. James Rodríguez should also start the game in Isco's spot and it was surprising to see Jesé missing the list. Apparently, Lucas Vázquez could be Real's 12th man off the bench if Los Blancos need to shake things up during the match. Expect Danilo to play in the left-back position.

Update: Jese has apparently picked up a minor knock in training, thus the omission from the squad  list.
