Real Madrid have published their squad list for Saturday’s away match against Celta Vigo.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Altube.

Defenders: E. Militão, R. Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and F. Mendy.

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

Forwards: Benzema, Asensio, Lucas V., Vini Jr., Rodrygo and Hugo Duro.

This is an important game for Los Blancos, who are still six points behind Atletico in the table and need every win they can get if they want to put some pressure on their city neighbors and prove that they can still fight for the title.

Casemiro will likely return to the lineup after missing Tuesday’s match with a suspension, but veterans like Modric, Kroos or Benzema could get some more rest after the crucial win against Atalanta, which was an intense game. Players like Rodrygo or Asensio could use this match to increase their confidence if they’re given the chance to start.

Ramos will miss the game as a precaution.
