Real Madrid published the squad list for Saturday's match against Deportivo La Coruña and Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have not been included as they will rest.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

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

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

Attackers: Morata, Lucas Vázquez and Mariano.

Zinedine Zidane will rotate his squad for this home match and it makes a lot of sense after the games against Atletico, Barcelona and Dortmund. The French coach announced that Morata will start upfront and Marco Asensio will most likely replace Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting XI as he did when the Portuguese star was injured.

It will be interesting to see how the reserves perform in this game, although they should definitely have more than enough quality to beat Deportivo at the Bernabeu and keep their lead in La Liga table.
