Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has been handed a boost ahead of Los Blancos' Champions League last-16 first leg at Roma on Wednesday.

Marcelo, who suffered an acromioclavicular shoulder joint dislocation in Real's La Liga win away to Granada earlier in February, has made the Frenchman's squad for the crunch clash in Rome.

The Brazilian left-back was determined not to miss out on the trip to the Italian capital, and on Monday trained as normal at Valdebebas after rejoining the group.

Two men who will be unavailable to face Luciano Spalletti's side due to injury are Pepe (foot) and Gareth Bale (calf), with both yet to resume training alongside their team-mates.

Real Madrid squad:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.

Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Arbeloa, Carvajal, Danilo, Marcelo and Nacho.

Midfielders: Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, James, Modric and Kovacic.

Forwards: Cristiano, Benzema, Jesé and Lucas Vázquez.
