Real Madrid have officially released their squad list ahead of their La Liga match against Real Mallorca as there have been some notable absentees and inclusions by Zinedine Zidane.
Due to injuries and a massive UEFA Champions League match coming up in midweek against Galatasaray, Zidane will be forced to make some changes to the lineup. Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Lucas Vazquez and Gareth Bale are all unfit to play the match while Eden Hazard has been given time off due to the birth of his fourth child this morning. Dani Carvajal is rested ahead of the Galatasaray match.
Zidane has also decided to add Brahim Diaz and Mariano Diaz to the squad list for the first time this season but it remains to be seen whether they will make the final list at game time or not.
Predicted Starting Lineup:
On paper, Real Madrid should win this match regardless of who plays but they’ll have to be extremely careful and it will be extremely interesting to see who Zidane decides to play when the time comes. My predicted starting eleven is:
Thibaut Courtois, Alvaro Odriozola, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy, Carlos Casemiro, Federico Valverde, Isco, Vinicius Junior, James Rodriguez, Luka Jovic
