Carlo Ancelotti has named his squad for the La Liga matchday 10 clash with Elche at Estadio Martinez Valero on Wednesday night.
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Lunin, Luis Lopez, Canizares.
Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militao, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Odriozola, Lucas V., Rudiger, F. Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Camavinga, Valverde, Tchouameni.
Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Rodrygo.
Mariano joins Ceballos and Courtois on the injury list. Courtois has started light training after his recovery from sciatica but is not expected to be match-ready until the third week of October.
It is expected that the team will be rotated to give rest to the players who have played the most minutes to date, while minutes are given to those who have had less playing time recently.
So, Hazard and Asensio could be in Ancelotti’s starting lineup tomorrow in attack alongside Ballon d’Or winner Benzema, while Camavinga could come in at the midfield to replace either Modric or Kroos, and in defense we could see Nacho returning to action in central defense, to give some rest to Militao.
