Real Madrid published the squad list for Sunday's La Liga match against Leganes at the Santiago Bernabeu (12:00 CET).


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrao and Danilo.

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

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Morata.

Karim Benzema will miss the game, as Zinedine Zidane confirmed during the pre-match press conference. Luka Modric is back with the team after having surgery on his knee a month ago and James is also back, just like Marcelo. Both of them missed the last game against Legia.

It will be an early kick-off so Madrid must avoid mistakes from the past. These players have a history of starting the games slowly and even though they are the favorites against Leganes, they should try to build some momentum in what will be their last match before the upcoming FIFA break.
