Real Madrid just published their squad list for the 2019-2020 La Liga opener in Vigo against Celta, which will be played this Saturday (17:00 CEST, 11am EST).

REAL MADRID’S SQUAD LIST:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Courtois and Altube.

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

Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, James and Isco.

Attackers: Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jović, Brahim and Vinicius Jr.

After a mediocre preseason, it’s time for Madrid to prove that they’re ready for the real competition. Los Blancos need to make a statement and this game will be a tough challenge for them as Celta are a quality team who are strong at home.

Madrid will be without Eden Hazard, who suffered a thigh injury during Friday’s training session and will miss the next three or four weeks. James, Bale, Vazquez, Vinicius, Isco or even Jovic could replace the attacker depending on what formation Zidane decides to use.
