Real Madrid released the squad list for today's match against Rayo (16:00 CET).

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

No surprises on this list and even players who have been occasionally left out like Cheryshev were included. All things considered, Real Madrid will probably not make rotations as their next match will be played in 10 days against Real Sociedad. It will be interesting to see if Kroos returns to the starting XI after not playing in the last two games against Malmo and Villarreal.

Jesé and Lucas Vázquez will surely be looking forward to get some minutes as well if things are going the right way for Madrid. Rayo will play offensively and with a lot of intensity, so Real will need to be careful during the first few minutes of the game.
