Real Madrid have published their squad list for Sunday’s match against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Luis López.

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

Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Camavinga, Valverde, D. Ceballos.

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

Modric returns to the team after missing Thursday’s Copa del Rey clash, and he should feature in the starting lineup for what’s expected to be a very tough away game for Madrid. Other than that, neither Tchouameni nor Alaba have been able to recover in time from their injuries, even though the coaching staff hoped to have them ready.

The starting lineup for this match will be a mystery, even more so considering that reserves like Ceballos or Asensio were the reason why Madrid managed to come back from a 2-0 deficit against a quality team like Villarreal last Thursday.
