Real Madrid published their squad list for Wednesday’s match against Ajax in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Courtois and Altube.

Defenders: Carvajal, Vallejo, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola and Reguilón.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, Asensio, Brahim and Ceballos.

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

Coach Santiago Solari is taking every single player available on this trip, even those who have not been playing minutes lately like Vallejo, Brahim or Valverde. Marcos Llorente will not be ready to play in this game just yet as he tries to recover from the injury he picked up during the past Madrid Derbi against Atletico, while Isco will also miss the match with a back injury.

Solari will have to make the final squad list before kick-off, given that only seven players are allowed on the bench.

The coach will speak in press conference later today.
