Real Madrid just published the squad list for Sunday's match against Betis, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

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

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

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

Coach Zinedine Zidane has not included neither Gareth Bale nor Luka Modric, so both of them will get some valuable rest. This is a very important factor, as Madrid have a deep squad capable of replacing their big stars against weaker teams at home. However, it's clear that Madrid will need their very best to overcome Betis, as the past 3-3 draw against Las Palmas proved.

Los Blancos can't afford any mistakes at this stage of the season if they want to win la Liga, especially against teams like Betis and at the Santiago Bernabeu. This will be a good chance for the reserves to prove their worth.
