Real Madrid have published their squad list for Saturday’s Madrid Derby against Atletico de Madrid, which will kick off at 18:30 CET.


Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Luis López.

Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militão, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Lucas V. y Rüdiger.

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

Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Mariano, Álvaro.

As expected, Tchouameni is back with the team having recovered from the flu symptoms he suffered last week. He should be fresh and ready to start as the team’s defensive midfielder.

Rodrygo Goes and David Alaba are out and will not be available after picking up muscle injuries during Tuesday’s match in Anfield. Valverde will be expected to replace Rodrygo on Real’s right wing, with Nacho possibly starting on the left side of the defensive line to replace Alaba.

Academy player Alvaro has also been included on the list.
