Real Madrid have published their squad list for Sunday’s away match against Atletico de Madrid in what will be a crucial Madrid Derby which could very well decide the 2020-2021 Liga title.

REAL MADRID SQUAD:

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Altube.

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

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

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

Karim Benzema is back for Real Madrid after missing the last few games and he will be expected to start alongside Vinicius and Marco Asensio, although Zidane could give Rodrygo a chance to play on the right wing given how discouraging Asensio has been lately.

Other than that, Real Madrid are still waiting for Carvajal and Ramos to recover, so Lucas Vazquez and Nacho will almost certainly start on the defensive line with Mendy and Varane. Casemiro, Kroos and Modric should feature on the midfield unless Zidane decides to make some changes.
