Real Madrid released the squad list to host Almería this Wednesday (20:00 CET). Ancelotti has given Mayoral, Llorente and Ødegaard (all three of them are Castilla players) a chance to be on the list and maybe feature if everything goes according to plan.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Coentrão, Marcelo, Arbeloa, Nacho and Diego Llorente.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Lucas Silva, Isco, Illarra and Odegaard.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Chicharito, Jesé and Mayoral.

The Norwegian sensation hasn't been playing well for Castilla lately. In fact, he has struggled to recover from a mysterious rib injury that kept him out of the Castilla squad over the last couple of weeks. Some will surely think that this call-up isn't fair, but one way or another Ancelotti decided to give him the nod.

Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal are ouf of this list suspended, and so are Bale, Benzema and Luka Modric, who are still recovering from injuries.
