Real Madrid have published their squad list for Sunday's away match against Espanyol.


Goalkeeper: Courtois, Lunin and Luis López.

Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militão, Alaba, Rüdiger and F. Mendy.

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

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

Toni Kroos and Rodrygo Goes are back. They both missed Madrid's last game against Celta Vigo and coach Carlo Ancelotti will likely use them, as they will be fresh and ready to play.

Coach Ancelotti said during his press conference that Rodrygo will feature in the starting lineup more often this season, so perhaps he could send a message and give him the chance to prove his worth as a starter tomorrow. Other than that, it will be interesting to see how Tchouameni performs after his brilliant match against Celta.
