James is back with the team, Bale and Jovic out.
Real Madrid have published their squad list for Saturday’s away match against Levante.
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, James and Isco.
Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez and Vinicius Jr.
Los Blancos will travel to Valencia with Benzema as the only pure striker in the squad. Luka Jovic has missed the call after being with a stomach bug this week, just like Gareth Bale, who will also miss the game.
Lucas Vazquez and James are back with the team while Rodrygo will need to stay patient before playing for Madrid again as he’s missed his fourth straight squad list.
All in all, it looks like Zidane could go with a 4-4-2 formation with Casemiro, Valverde, Kroos and Isco in the midfield and Hazard leading the offensive line alongside Karim Benzema.
Levante have been a very strong home team this season and Madrid will need to play with composure if they want to earn the three points.
