Real Madrid published the squad list for Tuesday's Champions League match against Wolfsburg.

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

Knowing how crucial this game can be for the whole team, Zidane has decided to call every player on the roster and he will have to scratch some names off that list before the match kicks off tomorrow.

Benzema and Varane have both recovered in time for this match and could make the Starting XI if Zidane sees it appropriate. It's clear that Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema will almost surely start the game upfront but Varane could stay on the bench.

In the midfield, Zidane appears inclined to start Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, something that would keep both James and Isco on the bench waiting for a chance to change the course of the game.
