Real Madrid released the squad list for the tough away game that the team will play at Villarreal tomorrow.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric and Isco.
Attackers: Jesé, Lucas Vázquez, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sergio Ramos is back and it remains to be seen whether he will need to take some more games off after this meeting with Villarreal. Bale and Navas are back as well and they will most likely make their return to the Starting XI too.

Cheryshev has missed the list as rumors indicate that he is set to rejoin Villarreal this winter looking for more playing time. The young winger hasn't had a chance to prove his worth ever since he decided to stay with Real Madrid last summer.

This will be a very tough game for Real Madrid, who need a win to cut Barcelona's current 4-point lead after Deportivo earned a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou.
