Real Madrid just published the squad list for Tuesday's match against Bayern Munich (20:45 CET, Santiago Bernabeu).

REAL MADRID'S SQUAD LIST

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.

As Zinedine Zidane confirmed during the pre-match press conference, Gareth Bale will not be with the team as he tries to recover from the calf injury he picked up last week. The Welshman could be ready for El Clasico next Sunday, though.

It will be interesting to see who Zidane picks as Bale's replacement. Isco's excellent form could definitely be useful and he probably deserves the nod, although it's true that he would not allow Madrid to play under the same style of football as when bale is on the pitch.
