Real Madrid released the squad list for tomorrow's home game against Roma, which will be the return leg for the Champions League Round of 16.

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

Zinedine Zidane will keep Borja Mayoral out of this one while Kroos and Modric are back with the team again after missing last Saturday's meeting with Celta. With both Mayoral and Benzema out, Zidane will most likely choose one man out of Vázquez and Jesé to play upfront unless he decides to move Cristiano Ronaldo to the center of the offensive line.

Real Madrid have a comfortable 0-2 lead against Roma but they must take the game seriously after the scare they suffered just a year ago when they had that same lead to Schalke. Bale is set to start again.
