It's time to take care of business in Europe.

Real Madrid published the squad list for Tuesday's Champions League match against Sporting Portugal.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrão and Danilo.

Midfielders: James, Kovacic, Modric, Asensio and Isco.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez and Mariano.

The list is exactly the same as the one for Saturday's Madrid derby. It will be interesting to see if Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema are healthy enough to play 90 minutes given that both of them started on the bench against Atletico.

Los Blancos must get a win against Sporting if they want to have a chance at winning their group. They drew the last away match to Legia in very discouraging fashion and now they must win their two remaining games as Borussia are expected to beat Legia Warsaw at home.

Zidane will speak to the press later today at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.
