Real Madrid released the squad list for Saturday's Liga BBVA home game against Celta de Vigo.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Carvajal and Danilo.
Midfielders: James, Bale, Casemiro, Kovacic and Isco.
Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lucas Vázquez, Jesé and Borja Mayoral.

As expected and confirmed by Zidane, Kroos and Modric will not be available. On the other hand, Gareth Bale will make his return to the team and might as well get a place in the Starting XI after how bad his team has missed him.

Zidane will also have all Pepe, Ramos, Varane and Nacho at his disposal, meaning that one out of Pepe and Varane will stay on the bench alongside Nacho. Marcelo should also return to the Starting XI.

Expect Mateo Kovacic and Casemiro to start in the midfield. Meanwhile, Zidane could decide to keep Mayoral out of the lineup this time in order to fit his stars into the team.
