Real Madrid just published their squad list for Sunday's La Liga match against Villarreal.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho and Marcelo.

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

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

Zidane's men will try to bounce back from their very disappointing loss against Valencia last Wednesday, when the team simply couldn't get the job done after their opponents got a 2-0 lead on the first 10 minutes of the game.

The players were visibly discouraged after that loss as they wasted a big opportunity to increase their lead to Barcelona in the table. Expect Madrid to complete a better performance against Villarreal, although it will not be easy for them to beat Fran Escriba's side away from the Bernabeu.

Zidane is not expected to make rotations for this one and Gareth Bale could even make his first starting lineup after his three-month absence from the team. Madrid will host Las Palmas next Wednesday and that's when Zidane will rest some of his starters.
