Real Madrid have published their squad list for Saturday’s home match against Alaves —21:00 CET—.
REAL MADRID’S SQUAD LIST:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Altube.
Defenders: E. Militão, R. Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and F. Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Casemiro, Ødegaard and Isco.
Attackers: Hazard, Asensio, Lucas V., Vini Jr., Mariano and Rodrygo.
This is yet another thin squad from Real Madrid, who will be without a pure right-back after Carvajal’s injury today. That means that Zidane will have to decide between Nacho, Lucas Vazquez and Mendy for that spot. Considering that Militao just rejoined the squad in training, he might not be ready to start just yet, which means that Nacho will be needed alongside Varane.
If that’s the case, expect Zidane to start Lucas Vazquez on the right wing and give either Rodrygo or Asensio the chance to start on the right side of the offensive line as they try to gain some confidence for the tough schedule ahead.
