REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Luca and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Reguilón.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, M. Llorente, Brahim, Isco and Ceballos.
Forwards: Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Vinicius Jr.
Gareth Bale is available after recovering from his calf injury, but Marco Asensio didn’t make the squad list even though he completed the last few training sessions with the rest of the squad. All things considered, Bale should not be expected to feature in the starting lineup as coach Santiago Solari will probably just give him minutes late in the game so that he can improve his conditioning progressively.
Solari might not make rotations for this one and wait for next Thursday’s match against Girona to rest some of the starters who have been quite a lot in the last few games.
