Real Madrid released the squad list for Sunday's game against Celta de Vigo (21:00 CET).

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Keylor Navas, Dani Pacheco.
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Álvaro Arbeloa, Raphaël Varane, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Fàbio Coentrao, Nacho Fernández.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Asier Illarramendi, Lucas Silva, Isco Alarcón, James Rodríguez.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Chicharito Hernández, Jesé Rodríguez.

Marcelo is back in the squad after missing the Champions League match suspended. Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Sergio Ramos will play as a defender in Vigo, meaning that one player out of Asier Illarramendi and Lucas Silva and will feature alongside Toni Kroos. Khedira is out of the list.

Chicharito Hernández will also be given another chance to start after scoring the game-winning goal in the Madrid Derby. The Mexican player is ahead of Jesé Rodríguez in the rotation and while Real's wonder kid might not like that, it's well-deserved after the hard work Chicharito has displayed whenever he has been given the chance.
