Real Madrid released the 19 men that will be available for Saturday's home game against Deportivo de la Coruña.


Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.

Defenders: Varane, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa, Nacho and Derik.

Midfielders: Kroos, Bale, Lucas Silva, Isco, Illarra and Medrán.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.

Even though Pepe made his return to the squad's training session this week, Ancelotti will save him for the next couple of weeks, where he could play a crucial part.

The Italian coach confirmed that he will not make many changes from the team that started at the Vicente Calderón. He did confirm that Arbeloa will likely play in Carvajal's spot, while announcing that Lucas Silva will not make his first start for Real Madrid just yet, giving Illarramendi the chance to be in the starting XI.

It will be interesting to see the Bernabéu's attitude towards their players after such a big loss against Atlético. Whistles are expected.
