Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have been included in the squad list against Osasuna

Madrid, Spain – Real Madrid published the 19-man squad list for Saturday’s home game against Osasuna and both Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have been included, the club confirmed.

It’s worth saying that Marcelo, Casemiro, James and Isco will all miss the game after international duty.

“He’s here with us and he’s happy. He isn’t in the squad for tomorrow, neither are Casemiro or Marcelo. They’ve come back a bit fatigued, we’ve got seven games in 21 days and we’ve got to give everyone a rest. I’m happy to have all the players back here and ready to play. You’ll see the line-up tomorrow, we’ve got players to fill in.” said Real’s boss Zinedine Zidane.

The French strategist, with a big smile on his face, confirmed that “Cristiano is fit and will play against Osasuna.”

Goalkeepers: Casilla, Ruben Yañez and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Nacho and Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, Kovacic, Modric and Asensio.

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano and Morata.
