Real Madrid just published their squad list for tonight’s away match against Athletic Bilbao.


Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Courtois and Casilla.

Defenders: Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Odriozola.

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

Attackers: Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Mariano.

No surprises in this list. Odriozola appears to be ready to start and could give Carvajal some needed rest after this FIFA break. Rumors suggest that Casemiro could also come off the bench here.

All in all, it seems that Benzema, Bale and Asensio will be starting for Los Blancos upfront. This attacking trio has starter the season in very good form and another quality performance will be needed if Madrid want to walk away from Bilbao with three more points in La Liga.

Lopetegui could decide to make rotations as his team will host Roma in the first game of the 2018-19 Champions League season next Wednesday.
