Isco & Bale included in Zidane's first Real Madrid squad since returning

  /  autty

Zinedine Zidane has annnounced his first squad since returning to Real Madrid as they are set to take on Celta Vigo this weekend.

Isco had been totally isolated by Santiago Solari, and wasn't even forcing his way into match squads, whilst Marcelo had lost his place as starting left-back.

Zidane's squad only omits one player due to a tactical decision, and that is Jesus Vallejo, otherwise the coach has selected everyone who is available to play.

Real Madrid's injury list continues to mount up as the season enters its final stage, with Vinicius Junior, Dani Carvajal, Marcos Llorente and Lucas Vazquez all absent through varying fitness issues.

Casemiro will also be missing on Saturday as the Brazilian midfielder is suspended, leaving Zidane with a difficult decision on who to place in the holding midfield position.

Real Madrid squad:

GK: Navas, Courtois, L. Zidane.

DF: Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola, Reguilon.

MF: Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Asensio, B. Diaz, Isco, Ceballos.

FW: Mariano, Benzema, Bale.
