Real Madrid released the squad list for the return leg against Schalke 04 (Tuesday 20:45 CET).

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Keylor Navas, Dani Pacheco

Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Álvaro Arbeloa, Nacho Fernández, Pepe, Raphaël Varane, Marcelo, Fàbio Coentrao

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Asier Illarramendi, Sami Khedira, Luka Modric, Isco Alarcón, Lucas Silva

Attackers: Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Jesé Rodríguez, Chicharito Hernández.

As expected, Luka Modric is back on the squad, and Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that he wants to give him minutes. However, he will not be starting.

Martin Ødegaard had the chance to become the youngest player to ever feature in a Champions League match, but Carlo Ancelotti kept him out of the list and decided not to give him such record even with Real Madrid's two-goal lead on aggregate.

Ramos is also out of the list but he should be able to play next Sunday and get ready for Real Madrid's visit to the Camp Nou.
