Real Madrid published their squad list for Sunday’s —22:00 CET— Spanish Supercup game against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. As expected, Cristiano Ronaldo has made the list while the injured Jesús Vallejo will stay in Madrid watching his teammates.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo.

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic and Ceballos.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez.

All things considered, it would be wise to expect Cristiano Ronaldo making his return to Madrid’s starting XI today. The Portuguese wasn’t fit enough to make the lineup against Manchester United but he now had another week to train and get in good shape.

Luka Modric is suspended so Mateo Kovacic will almost surely be his replacement in the midfield line, although it’s true that Isco could also have a chance of playing there if Zidane decides to go back to the BBC of Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo starting upfront.
