Real Madrid will play Villarreal on Sunday night at the Estadio de la Cerámica (21:00 CET), and Zinedine Zidane has named a 19-man travelling squad for the match, corresponding to the third game of the 2019/20 LaLiga season.
Luka Modric returns to the squad after serving his one-match suspension last weekend against Valladolid. Ferland Mendy trained with the group for a second consecutive week and makes the squad. The French left-back could make his competitive debut for Real Madrid, although it’s highly unlikely that he will start ahead of Marcelo.
Isco, James Rodriguez, Brahim, Eden Hazard and Rodrygo are still injured and therefore unavailable for selection.
FULL TRAVELLING SQUAD:
GOALKEEPERS: Keylor Navas, Thibaut Courtois, Diego Altube.
DEFENDERS: Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola, Éder Militão, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy.
MIDFIELDERS: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Federico Valverde.
FORWARDS: Karim Benzema, Luka Jovic, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius Jr.
