Real Madrid released the squad list for Sunday's away match against Elche.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa, Nacho and Diego Llorente.
Midfielders: Kroos, Bale, Lucas Silva, Isco, Illarra and Medrán.
Strikers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.

It will be extremely important for Los Blancos to get the three points away from the Bernabéu, considering that both Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid are expected to win at home against Málaga and Almería respectively.

Carlo Ancelotti said during his pre-match press conference that he still needs to make a decision about rotating his squad tomorrow or not. Real Madrid will not play again until next weekend, so it would make sense to start the best team available in Elche and rest the players on Monday in order to have them perfectly fit for next Sunday's match against Villarreal.

As Ancelotti announced, Luka Modric isn't available just yet, but he should be ready to play El Clásico on March 22nd.
