Real Madrid just published the squad list for tonight’s home match against Betis —22:00 CET— and confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo, Toni Kroos and Marcelo are all back with the team.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Luca.

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

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

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

It will be interesting to see if Zidane rotates some of his starters like Carvajal, Ramos or Casemiro, who have played most of the minutes this season. On the other hand, Toni Kroos, Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo will be back after missing Real Madrid’s trip to face Real Sociedad at Anoeta, so they will almost surely make the team’s starting lineup.

Betis are reportedly going to rest most of their starters, so coach Zidane should try to take advantage of that situation and do the very same thing knowing that they have enough firepower to beat Betis now that Cristiano Ronaldo is back with the team.
