Hazard and Modric are back with the team.
Real Madrid have published their squad list for Saturday’s home match against Betis, the last game before the crucial first leg of the Champions League Semifinals against Chelsea.
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, E. Militão, R. Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Odriozola.
Midfielders: Modric, Casemiro, Isco, Arribas and Blanco.
Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Mariano and Rodrygo.
As expected, both Luka Modric and Eden Hazard are back with the team. While Modric should be expected to start, Hazard will likely come off the bench as he tries to improve his form and conditioning before the final third of the season.
Carvajal should also play relevant minutes so that he can be 100% ready to face Chelsea, given that his presence is crucial for Real Madrid. The right-back stayed on the bench last Wednesday but it’s now time for him to make an impact on the right flank again.
