Rafa Benítez has decided to keep Ramos, Danilo, James and Bale out of Real Madrid's Champions League game against Malmo. It appeared that those players would recover in time to face the Swedish team, but Benítez has played it safe in order to have them ready for Sunday's Derby against Atlético.

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

Jesé has finally made the list after leaving the match against Málaga with severe cramps. Borja Mayoral and Marcos Llorente are also in the list but one of them will likely watch the game from the stands with Yáñez as Benítez will only be allowed to register 18 players for the game.

Real Madrid visit Malmo this Wednesday in what will be their second Champions League game. It should be a manageable match.
