Real Madrid will face Tottenham Hotspur this Tuesday, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will not be there. The Portuguese has small problems on his back while Benzema has a muscle injury.

Goalkeeper: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Casemiro, Modric, Cheryshev, Isco, Illarra, Asensio and Odegaard.
Attackers: Jesé, Lucas Vázquez and Borja Mayoral.

Marco Asensio enters Real Madrid's list for the first time since he signed his contract last January, and it will be very interesting to see whether Benítez uses him on this friendly or not. Borja Mayoral will also replace Karim Benzema for some minutes, so these two youngsters will have a chance to prove they can have a spot in this season's roster.

If everything goes according to plan in this Audi Cup, Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but both teams will need to win their matches to play that Final.
