Real Madrid just published their squad list for tonight's La Liga opener against Deportivo La Coruña.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Luca.

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

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Asensio, Isco, Modric, Ceballos, Marcos Llorente.

Attackers: Bale, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez.

As expected, neither Kovacic nor Jesus Vallejo made the list. Cristiano Ronaldo is also suspended and will have to wait a few more weeks to be involved with the team.

It will be important for Madrid to get this away win against Deportivo because a renewed Valencia will visit the Bernabeu on the second week of the competition.

No heavy rotations are expected but Zidane could still decide to use players like Theo Hernandez or Nacho in defense. Gareth Bale is also expected to male his return to the starting lineup after being on the bench last Wednesday against Barcelona in the return leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona.
