Real Madrid published the squad list for today’s match against Atletico.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Luca.

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

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco and Kovacic.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale and Lucas Vázquez.

Coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to keep defender Jesus Vallejo out of the team, probably so that he can be fresh enough to face Juventus next Wednesday, when Ramos will not be available.

Real Madrid are not expected to make many rotations for this one given that it’s a Madrid Derby and that pride is on the line. Still, Gareth Bale could feature in the starting lineup after staying on the bench against Juventus.
