Zinedine Zidane has listed 19 players for tomorrow's game against Real Sociedad at Anoeta. Not making the trip to San Sebastián are Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, both injured, and Toni Kroos who will be rested for next week's Champions League semi-final return leg against Manchester City. Álvaro Arbeloa, who didn't take part in today's training session has been omitted although the club has not released a medical update to explain his absence.

Jesé, who suffered bruising to his tibia in the first leg against City, has recovered in time for the game - he trained today and looks set to start. Zidane will also take Borja Mayoral, who also trained with the first team in Valdebebas this morning and was in the list for the Etihad as a precautionary measure although he ended watching the game from the stands.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Yáñez.

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

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