Real Madrid just published their squad list for Saturday’s home match against Espanyol. Coach Julen Lopetegui revealed that he will make some rotations for this game.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Courtois.

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

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

Attackers: Mariano, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Vinicius Jr.

Carvajal is not available for this game and defender Alvaro Odriozola is expected to start on the right side of Madrid’s defensive line. Other than that, it will be interesting to see who starts at the goalkeeper spot given that Keylor Navas was the one chosen for the Champions League opener against Roma last Wednesday. Will Lopetegui give Courtois La Liga and Navas the Champions League and the Copa del Rey? So far, he hasn’t revealed his plans, so all the fans can do at the moment is guess who will start every game.
