Raphaël Varane has finally made the list to face Granada. The French defender had to be taken off after the halftime whistle of Real's Champions League opener against Shakhtar with some problems on his ankle, but he will be available.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Arbeloa, Nacho, Marcelo and Carvajal.
Midfielders: Kroos, Lucas Vázquez, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric and Isco.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Jesé and Cheryshev.

Ramos and Bale are not ready to play yet as they try to recover in time for the Derby against Atlético de Madrid. Cheryshev and Lucas Vázquez both made the list and they could have some minutes given Bale's absence, although most fans would like to see Jesé starting.

Other than that, no surprises in Real's list. This one should be a manageable game for Los Blancos against a Granada side that were almost relegated last season. Will Rafa Benítez rotate his squad?
