REAL MADRID’S SQUAD LIST:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.
Attackers: Hazard, Benzema, Bale, Jović and Rodrygo.
This is the same squad list Zidane used for Saturday’s match against Real Sociedad, with promising winger Vinicius Jr. out of the list. It definitely seems that Zidane has found his group of players and he will keep using this rotation as long as his players keep performing and stay healthy.
It will surely be disappointing for Vinicius, who will keep losing confidence, form and momentum if he stays out of the rotation. The winger now has to work hard to regain his spot and a potential loan deal in the upcoming winter transfer window might be in order, given that he needs minutes.
