CONFIRMED: Real Madrid squad to face Eibar in La Liga


Zinedine Zidane will rest some of his usual starters ahead of the crucial match against Wolfsburg on Tuesday.

The Real Madrid manager has left Keylor Navas, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric out of the squad to face Eibar on Saturday in la Liga.

Benzema, who picked up a knock in Wednesday’s first leg match against Wolfsburg and had to be replaced, will miss the match out of precaution. He’s not suffering from any injury but Zidane wants him perfectly fit for the second leg.

This will be Real Madrid’s squad for the Eibar match:

Goalkeepers: Kiko Casilla, Ruben Yañez and Craninx.
Defenders: Pepe, Nacho Fernandez, Marcelo, Daniel Carvajal, Alvaro Arbeloa and Danilo.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic, Casemiro and Isco.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Borja Mayoral, Lucas Vazquez and Jese Rodriguez.

Kiko Casilla will be the starting goalkeeper. Nacho Fernandez will come in in defence, while youngsters Lucas Vazquez, Mateo Kovacic and Jese Rodriguez could also have a chance to start.
