Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is taking a 22-man travelling squad to Vigo where Real Madrid will face Celta tomorrow for the opening LaLiga game of the season. The match kicks-off at 17:00 CEST at the Balaídos stadium.

Real Madrid’s captain, Sergio Ramos, makes his return to the squad after missing the last pre-season game against AS Roma while new signing Eden Hazard misses out with a hamstring injury.

Dani Carvajal was meant to be suspended after picking up a 10th yellow card against Real Betis on the last matchday of the 2018/19 season, but the National Sports Council decided that suspensions from last season won’t be taken into the new season.


Meanwhile, James Rodriguez makes his first return to a Real Madrid squad after 817 days.

Brahim Diaz, who suffered an injury in the beginning of the pre-season campaign in Montreal, returns to the squad.
