Real Madrid just published the squad list for Saturday's La Liga match against Malaga, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Kovacic, Modric, Asensio and Isco.

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

Real Madrid need a statement win against Malaga to prove themselves and the rest of the world that they are still the solid team that managed to play 40 games without a single loss. Their two consecutive defeats against Sevilla and Celta Vigo have put the squad in a tough spot, but coach Zinedine Zidane said during the pre-match press conference that he is not worried about the current situation. It will be very important for Madrid to complete a good performance and prove that they are still one of Europe's most competitive teams.

Asensio is finally available after being forced to leave Wednesday's game with a hand injury.
