Real Madrid have published their squad list for Tuesday’s away match against Shakhtar in the fourth game of the Champions League’s Group Stage.


Goalkeepers: Lunin, Luis López and Cañizares.

Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Rüdiger and F. Mendy.

Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Camavinga, Valverde, Lucas V. and Tchouameni.

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Rodrygo and Mariano.

As expected, striker Karim Benzema made the list and will be available having rejoined the squad in training this Sunday. Benzema missed Saturday’s match against Getafe with muscle fatigue but every single report indicated that he would be back for the matches against Shakhtar and Barcelona.

Some rotations should be expected in this game as Carlo Ancelotti will want to have every single starter fresh for Sunday’s El Clasico, so perhaps this game will offer the Italian coach a good opportunity to rest Vinicius.
