Real Madrid published the squad list for Wednesday's match against Borussia Dortmund, which will be the last in this group stage of the Champions League.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Danilo and Marcelo.

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

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

Toni Kroos and Alvaro Morata are back with the squad even though they were expected to miss more time.

Mateo Kovacic will rest this match and Mariano Diaz is also out of the squad list.

Real Madrid need to beat Borussia if they want to win their group, so coach Zinedine Zidane will not make many rotations for this one. Players like Casemiro, Kroos and Morata will be looking forward to get their groove back.

"We are going to play it like a final, a group final. We’re playing at home and we want to have a great game tomorrow. We will not over think things, just play the game with intensity and try to finish first. We will prepare the game well and see how to cause them problems," said Zidane.
