Real Madrid released the squad list to visit Atlético de Madrid in Saturday's Derby.

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

Surprisingly enough, Carlo Ancelotti included Marcelo in the list, but that doesn't mean he will be able to play. The Brazilian left back is still awaiting for the ultimate and final decision by the TAS to see if he can feature at the Calderón, though that doesn't seem very likely at the moment.

Considering that Real Madrid will be without Pepe, Ramos, Modric and James, it will be interesting to see Ancelotti's lineup. The Italian coach will likely start Carvajal and Coentrao on the flanks, with either Illarramendi or Khedira in the midfield to fill James' shoes.

Cristiano Ronaldo is also back with the team after his two-match ban, and he is ready to start alongside Benzema and Bale.
