Real Madrid released the squad list for Saturday's match against Eibar.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Nacho.
Midfielders: Lucas Silva, Modric, Isco, Illarra and Javi Muñoz.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesé, Benzema and Chicharito.

Cristiano Ronaldo has finally been included after his ban was lifted, but Los Blancos will be without James Rodríguez and Toni Kroos, both of them suspended after seeing 5 yellow cards. That's the reason why Ancelotti included Javi Muñoz on the list. Gareth Bale will also miss this match.

Pepe is also back on the squad after rejoining the group two days ago. The Portuguese defender is expected to start against Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League, so he could also get some minutes against Eibar in order to get ready for that important clash against the city rivals.

Ancelotti confirmed that Jesé Rodríguez and Illarramendi have "good chances" of starting tomorrow.
