Everything is set. Real Madrid released the squad list of the men available for Wednesday's decisive clash against Atlético de Madrid.

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Keylor Navas, Dani Pacheco.

Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Álvaro Arbeloa, Nacho Fernández, Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane, Pepe, Fàbio Coentrao.

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Asier Illarramendi, Lucas Silva, Isco Alarcón, James Rodríguez, Sami Khedira.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesé Rodríguez, Chicharito Hernández.

This list confirms Luka Modric and Gareth Bale are not available after the injuries they picked up during Real's home game against Málaga. Carlo Ancelotti will obviously have to do some thinking to replace those two key starters for Los Blancos, although Illarramendi and Isco appear to be the most likely choices.

As expected after the club confirmed his knee injury, Benzema is also out of the list, meaning that Real Madrid will play this match without four key starters (Modric, Bale, Marcelo and Benzema). This is certainly not the best moment to face Atlético.
