Real Madrid released the squad list for Tuesday's Champions League game against Atlético de Madrid.

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Nacho.
Midfielders: Kroos, Khedira, James, Bale, Lucas Silva, Modric, Isco and Illarra.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.

This is the whole roster, meaning that Ancelotti will have to make some important decisions about the squad tomorrow. He will have to pick 5 players that will not be able to be on the bench. The reserves could play a key role in this match, so Ancelotti's call will be important.

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed during the pre-match press conference that Gareth Bale has successfully recovered from his foot injury, so the Welsh player should be expected to start at the Vicente Calderón. Furthermore, the Italian coach stated that Real Madrid "are not obsessed with the win", as the goal is to "qualify to the next round."
