Crucial match for La Liga title.
Real Madrid have published their squad list for Sunday’s away match against Athletic Bilbao.
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Mendy and Javi Hernandez.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.
Forwards: Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jovic, Asensio, Brahim, Mariano, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.
Eden Hazard didn’t train with the squad this Saturday and that’s the main reason why he will miss this game. Hazard wasn’t available when Madrid hosted Getafe last Thursday and it looks like he is currently nursing some kind of minor injury, given that the club hasn’t release an injury report.
Real Madrid are four points ahead of Barcelona in the table and this is quite possibly the toughest game left on their schedule, so earning the three points here would be crucial for the race for the 2019-2020 La Liga title with only four matches until the end of the season.
