Real Madrid published the squad list for their first home game of this Liga Santander season.
Goalkeepers: Casilla, Rubén Yáñez and Craninx.
Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric and Asensio.
Attackers: Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.
Pepe is back with the team and both Nacho and Isco will be missing this game. The midfielder has had a sprained ankle for the last couple of weeks and today he had to leave the training session as the injury was bothering him. He will have time to recover from that during the next two weeks as he has not been included in Spain's list.
Nacho, on the other hand, is Real Madrid's fourth center-back. With Pepe, Varane and Ramos healthy, Nacho will not have enough minutes, so he could ask for a way out of the club in order to feature more often.
Luka Modric is also back after missing the last game with a suspension.
