Real Madrid released the squad list for Sunday's (12:00 CET) home match against Granada. Carlo Ancelotti announced that James Rodríguez is ready to start the game after missing the last two months with a foot injury. The Colombian will be back on the lineup, because Isco is out suspended.

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Keylor Navas, Dani Pacheco.

Defenders: Álvaro Arbeloa, Nacho Fernández,, Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane, Marcelo, Fàbio Coentrao.

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, James Rodríguez, Asier Illarramendi, Lucas Silva.

Attackers: Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesé Rodríguez, Chicharito Hernández.

While this game should be manageable for Real Madrid, it will be very important for Ancelotti's men to play well. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema will be hoping to gain some momentum ahead of the upcoming Champions League tie against Atlético de Madrid, and this Granada visit to the Bernabéu will be a good opportunity to do so.

Pepe will miss the game with an injury that won't keep him out of the first leg at the Calderón.
