Real Madrid just published the squad list for tonight’s away match against Athletic Bilbao —20:45 CET—.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Moha.

Defenders: Nacho, Marcelo, Theo, Varane, Carvajal, Ramos.

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

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez and Mayoral.

Once again, Los Blancos will be without Gareth Bale. The Welsh player felt some discomfort during the match against Fuenlabrada —which marked his return to the pitch two months after picking up a muscle injury— and was ruled out for the trip to San Mames immediately after.

Sergio Ramos will be back with the team wearing a mask to protect his broken nose. Real’s captain has been sidelined for two weeks after the Madrid Derby but now he is expected to start in the center of the team’s defensive line.

While Bilbao have been in poor form lately, this one will be a tough game for Real Madrid.
