Real Madrid published their squad list for Tuesday’s match against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, a list without midfielder Casemiro.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Altube.

Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militão, Sergio Ramos, R. Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola and F. Mendy.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Valverde and Isco.

Attackers: Benzema, Asensio, Lucas V., Vini Jr. and Rodrygo.

Without Casemiro, Fede Valverde is set to get major minutes at the midfield line tomorrow. The Uruguayan player came off the bench against Atletico de Madrid and seems ready to make an impact, and now he will be needed.

Other than that, Zidane might decide to give Varane some rest, given that Nacho has performed well recently. Vinicius and Rodrygo will likely start upfront although Zidane could also try to get Marco Asensio involved now that he needs confidence and minutes to play at the level he was playing before suffering the ACL injury.
