Real Madrid have published their squad list for Thursday’s match against Villarreal in the Copa del Rey’s Round of 16.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Luis López.

Defenders: E. Militão, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Rüdiger, F. Mendy and Tobias.

Midfielders: Kroos, Camavinga, Valverde, D. Ceballos and Mario Martín.

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

Luka Modric is the one and only rotation Ancelotti will be making with his list, although it’s true that some other starters could very well start the game sitting on the bench.

It looks like Ancelotti will take this game very seriously, as other veterans like Benzema or Kroos will travel with the squad. It will be interesting to see who starts at the right-back spot, with Militao, Nacho, Odriozola and Vinicius Tobias all having a decent chance at featuring in the starting lineup on the right side of the defense.
