Real Madrid just published the squad list for Tuesday’s Copa del Rey game against Fuenlabrada. Los Blancos hold a 2-0 lead on aggregate after their win in the opening game of the leg.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Moha.

Defenders: Nacho, Theo, Achraf, Tejero, Quezada, Manu Hernando.

Midfielders: M. Llorente, Kovacic, Ceballos, Feuillassier, Óscar and Seoane.

Attackers: Bale and B. Mayoral.

Mateo Kovacic and Keylor Navas will be back and so will Gareth Bale. Coach Zinedine Zidane said in the pre-match press conference that Navas and Kovacic will start the game and also revealed that the plan is to give Bale some minutes in order to have him in shape for Real’s next games.

Other than that, Zidane will surely rotate his squad in this one and give the young players a chance to perform and show what they’re capable of. Real Madrid will visit Athletic Bilbao next Saturday in what might be a tough game for Los Blancos, so the starters simply have to get ready for that game and keep their legs fresh while the youngsters get the job done against Fuenlabrada.
