Reak Madrid announced the squad list for the 2016-2017 edition of the UEFA Champions League.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla, Ruben Yañez.

Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Danilo, Raphael Varane, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Nacho Fernandez, Marcelo, Fabio Coentrao.

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric, Marco Asensio, Isco Alarcon, James Rodriguez, Mateo Kovacic, Martin Odegaard.

Attackers: Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Alvaro Morata, Mariano Diaz, Lucas Vazquez.

It's quite surprising to see Martin Ødegaard included in this list, but it will be hard for the Norwegian sensation to feature unless many players within Real's roster get injured.

Mariano could have more chances, although he still has both Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata ahead of him in the depth chart.

Real Madrid will face Borussia Dortmund, Sporting Portugal and Legia Warwow in the Group Stage of the Champions League, meaning that they should be capable of winning the group and face a manageable side in the Round of 16.
