Real Madrid just published the squad list for Sunday’s game against Espanyol —20:45 CET— a match where Achraf Hakimi will be the team’s only available full back as Carvajal, Theo and Marcelo will miss the game.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla.

Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Achraf, Vallejo and Tejero

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Marcos Llorente, Asensio, Isco and Ceballos.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lucas Vázquez and Mayoral.

Real Madrid will be trying to earn their first home win of this young La Liga season after dropping points against Levante, Valencia and Betis. It will be interesting to see what Zidane decides to do with his defensive line as Achraf Hakimi might be too young and too green to start, even though he’s clearly a promising player that could contribute in the future.

Other than that, Real Madrid should have enough firepower to beat Espanyol and use this FIFA break to recover some injured players like Theo or Benzema.
