Real Madrid have published their squad list for Thursday’s match against Villarreal —21:00 CEST—.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.

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

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

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jović, Asensio, Brahim, Mariano, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.

Only Marcelo —injured— and James Rodriguez —technical decision— are out of this list. Real Madrid have their first chance to win the 2019-2020 La Liga title and they’ll do so with a victory in this game, no matter what Barcelona do. A draw would also be enough if Barcelona drop points at home against Osasuna, which seems unlikely.

Real Madrid have fought very hard for a chance to win this edition of La Liga and it’s now time for them to take care of business and not waste the opportunity, even if the last game against Leganes is expected to be a manageable one.
