Real Madrid have published their squad list for Tuesday’s match against Cacereño in the Copa del Rey’s Round of 32, the first game of the domestic competition for Los Blancos.


Goalkeepers: Lunin, Luis López and Cañizares.

Defenders: E. Militão, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Lucas V., Rüdiger and Marvel.

Midfielders: Camavinga, Valverde, Tchouameni, D. Ceballos, Arribas and Nico Paz.

Forwards: Hazard, Asensio, Rodrygo and Álvaro.

Regulars like Benzema, Kroos, Modric, Alaba, Courtois, Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy will rest this game, so coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to make rotations to keep everyone fresh, knowing that they will be facing Villarreal away from the Bernabeu next Saturday.

Ancelotti announced that Eden Hazard will play, so it will be interesting to keep an eye on his performance, even though it’s always tough to play in a Segunda RFEF stadium like Cacereño’s.
