Real Madrid released the squad list for tomorrow's away match against Granada.

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

Gareth Bale and Pepe are still out, and Danilo will not be available either. Zinedine Zidane is not expected to make rotations this week as his players still have fresh legs. Kovacic and Casemiro will have to wait for their opportunity once Los Blancos start playing more often when the Champions League Round of 1 begins.

Real Madrid can't afford to drop any more points after the 1-1 draw to Betis two weeks ago. FC Barcelona have a solid lead in the Liga BBVA table and Real need to take care of business in these manageable games while the schedule is still easy on them.

The next two Liga BBVA games will be played against Athletic Bilbao and Málaga.
