Real Madrid just published the squad list for Saturday's match against Sporting Gijon and Zinedine Zidane will be making some rotations after Wednesday's tough match in Germany.


Goalkeepers: Casilla and Yáñez.

Defenders: Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrão, Danilo and Tejero.

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

Forwards: Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Keylor Navas and Carvajal will not be available for this one, so the reserves have to come out firing on all cylinders if Madrid want to get these valuable three points.

Lucas Vazquez and Morata will be expected to start for Madrid upfront and they've got plenty of things to play for. Vazquez, for instance, did not even make the team's final list last Wednesday and seems to have lost his spot to Marco Asensio. On the other hand, Morata isn't even getting meaningful minutes during this second half of the season, so he will want to prove he is ready to play.
