Real Madrid published their squad list for Saturday’s —16:15 CET— away match against Alaves.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Achraf and Tejero.

Midfielders: Modric, Casemiro, Asensio, Isco, Ceballos and M. Llorente.

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

As expected, Real Madrid will be without Toni Kroos, Marcelo, Karim Benzema, Mateo Kovacic and Theo Hernandez. Nacho Fernandez will most likely be the one player deployed on the left side of Madrid’s defensive line while Zidane could go back to Isco in the midfield with Asensio, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo upfront.

Alaves have been abysmal this season as they have not scored a single goal over five games. They’ve conceded eight of them and Real Madrid should easily dismantle them as they also get ready for Tuesday’s crucial clash in Germany against Borussia Dortmund, one match which could very well have a huge impact on their Champions League season.
