Squad List for UCL
The club released the squad list for tomorrow’s game against Inter Milan. Mendy is not included in the list, as he suffered a relapse and didn’t train in the pitch yesterday. Marcelo won’t travel either, because he is feeling a disconfort in his right leg and will undergo medical tests.
Bale will likely miss the games against Inter, Valencia, Mallorca, Villarreal, Sheriff and Espanyol due to a broken hamstring in his right leg.

Zidane in the Bernabéu
Zidane was in the Bernabéu with his wife watching the game against Celta. According to Gol, the Madridistas said:
Zidane, you’re the number 1, always! Come back! Come back whenever you want!
He said he was happy to return to the Bernabéu. When asked if it’s weird to be in the stands, Zidane answered:
No, no, (laughs). The team was good.
