Real Madrid just published their squad list for Tuesday's match in the UEFA Champions League against Atletico de Madrid (20:45 CET).


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

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

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

Attackerss: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano and Morata.

Isco is expected to start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, although Marco Asensio or James Rodriguez could also have a chance after their good performances.

It will be interesting to see whether Real Madrid are can finally keep a clean sheet or not, as away goals are extremely valuable in the Champions League. Coach Zinedine Zidane will almost surely start Casemiro, Modric and Kroos in the midfield hoping to dominate the game and prevent Atletico from having plenty of chances.

Raphael Varane appears ready to start although Zidane did not want to announce if he will be starting the match.
