Los Blancos have also omitted Luka Modric from their 19-man squad, as the Croatian midfielder only resumed full training on Saturday.

Sergio Ramos is back in contention, having missed Real Madrid defeat against Juventus at the Santiago Bernabeu due to suspension and Karim Benzema is expected to start up top for Madrid as they look for the win that would lift them above Valencia into third place.
