REAL MADRID’S SQUAD LIST:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.
Attackers: Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jović and Vinicius Jr.
It’s still surprising to see that Eden Hazard isn’t making the team’s squad lists even though he’s been training with his teammates for the last two weeks. Zidane is still taking a cautious approach but Hazard needs minutes as soon as possible so that he can improve his conditioning and confidence ahead of the Champions League tie against Manchester City, where he should definitely be a relevant player for Madrid.
Other than that, Bale is back with the team after the ankle injury he picked up in Salamanca, while Rodrygo will not play this weekend and seems to have lost his spot as a starter on the right wing, even more so now that Hazard is still not available.
