Real Madrid just published the squad list for Saturday's Madrid Derby against Atletico de Madrid, a match which could be decisive for the outcome of the 2016-2017 La Liga season.

REAL MADRID SQUAD:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

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

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

Forwards: Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

Raphael Varane is the only player on Real's roster who's injured and that's why he hasn't been included on the list. Zinedine Zidane will have to send five of those players home before the game as only 7 men are allowed to be on the bench.

It will be interesting to see what Zidane does with his starting lineup. Will he trust Nacho ahead of Pepe? Will Casemiro start in the midfield considering how well Isco has been playing lately? Madrid need the three points, so those decisions could very well be decisive.
