Real Madrid published the squad list for Saturday's home game against Osasuna and both Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have been included.

Goalkeepers: Casilla, Rubén Yáñez and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Nacho and Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, Kovacic, Modric and Asensio.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

It will be very important for Madrid to take care of business considering that Marcelo, Casemiro, James and Isco will all miss the game.

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo will play some minutes but might not make the starting lineup, according to Zinedine Zidane.

It looks like Kroos, Kovacic and Modric will play in the midfield, meaning that Los Blancos will not have Casemiro's physical presence. They should be able to earn all three points without him but Osasuna could have some good counterattacking chances if Kroos doesn't pay attention to his back.

Nacho will most likely play as the team's left back without Marcelo given that Coentrao is still recovering from his injury.
