Real Madrid published their squad list for Sunday’s El Clasico against Barcelona. Ceballos and Vinicius made the cut but Lopetegui will have to leave four men out as only seven players are allowed on the bench.
REAL MADRID’S SQUAD LIST:
Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Courtois.
Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola and Reguilón.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco and Ceballos.
Attackers: Mariano, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Vinicius Jr.
It looks like Isco and Marcelo will be fit to play, although Lopetegui could decide to leave the midfielder on the bench to turn things around during the second half if he’s needed. Courtois will be expected to defend Madrid’s goal as he seems to be Lopetegui’s chosen one for La Liga with Navas being the starting goalkeeper in the Champions League.
Other than that, it’s a bit shocking to see Vallejo missing this trips as he is reportedly healthy and ready to play.
