Official: Real Madrid squad list to face Valencia | La Liga

As Real Madrid get set to take on Valencia at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday night, manager Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list of players he will have at his disposal for the game.

Real Madrid come into the game on the back of a 3-0 win over SC Braga and will be eager to carry that momentum forward into tomorrow’s game especially after the goalless draw vs Rayo Vallecano last weekend.

But, Los Blancos will have to cope with two more fresh injuries for the Valencia clash as Arda Guler and Kepa Arrizabalaga have now joined Dani Ceballos, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, and Aurelien Tchouameni on the sidelines.

Nico Paz, who made his first-team debut for the Merengues against Braga, is once again on the squad list and could get his maiden La Liga appearance.

Jude Bellingham has trained normally after having recovered from his shoulder issue and could be in line for a return to the starting XI.

Meanwhile, Antonio Rudiger is also unavailable due to suspension. It has prompted Ancelotti to name 19-year-old defender Edgar Pujol in the squad for the game against Valencia.

With Kepa ruled out, another young talent, Fran Gonzalez, will be acting as the second-choice goalkeeper for Real Madrid tomorrow, with Andriy Lunin assuming duties as the starter.
