Real Madrid published the squad list for Wednesday’s match against APOEL, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu —20:45 CET—.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Luca.

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

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, Ceballos, Kovacic, Modric

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

As expected, Cristiano Ronaldo is back with the team. Zinedine Zidane himself confirmed that the Portuguese star will be in Madrid’s starting lineup even though he hasn’t been playing with the team because of his suspension.

Karim Benzema will miss his first game after picking up a hamstring injury during the 1-1 draw against Levante and it will be interesting to see what Zidane does with his offensive line not only in this game but also in Madrid’s visit to Anoeta to face Real Sociedad next Sunday.

Keylor Navas, Varane and Modric will also make their return to the starting lineup.
