Real Madrid have published their squad list for the upcoming Spanish Supercup, which will kick off with the Semifinal against Valencia this next Wednesday —19:00 CEST—.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.

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

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

Attackers: Lucas Vázquez, Jović, Brahim, Mariano, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will both miss the tournament and that’s massive news for Real Madrd as they are crucial players for Zinedine Zidane’s offensive system. The French attacker has been the undisputed leader of Madrid’s attack and Los Blancos will surely miss his presence.

Marcelo, Lucas Vazquez and James Rodriguez are back with the team as they’ve successfully recovered from the injuries they picked up this fall.

Players like Luka Jovic, Rodrygo Goes, Vinicius or even Brahim Diaz could get some minutes during the Spanish Supercup.
