Real Madrid published their squad list for Sunday’s away game against Real Sociedad.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Luca and Altube.

Defenders: Carvajal, Vallejo, Nacho and Marcelo.

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

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

As you can see, coach Zinedine Zidane has decided to make some rotations for this game. Keylor Navas, Sergio Reguilon, Dani Ceballos, Gareth Bale and Raphael Varane will be resting while Ramos and Odriozola are still recovering from their injuries.

Navas’ absence is a bit shocking unless the goalkeeper picked up some kind of small injury during today’s training session. Reports from Spain suggest that Courtois will be Zidane’s goalkeeper next season but it’s still strange to see Navas missing the squad list if healthy.

Benzema is also back with the team and could even feature in the starting lineup, given how well he’s performed this season.
