Sergio Ramos will make his return to Real Madrid's starting XI in tomorrow's home game against Espanyol. The Spanish defender is back on the list after missing a couple of games with a calf injury that allowed him to rest his shoulder as well.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Carvajal and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric and Isco.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez and Jesé.

James is expected to start the match again even after completing a woeful performance against Betis last weekend. The Colombian needs to regain some confidence and this match could be important. Apparently, Isco could rest tomorrow, giving Jesé a chance to play in Bale's spot, if reports from Spain are accurate.

Pepe is out of the game with some physical problems he picked up during last weekend's match, so Varane will start. Carvajal should also get the nod ahead of Danilo this time.
