Real Madrid squad announced for Alavés trip, with Carvajal out
Suspension means that Real Madrid will be without Dani Carvajal for the Alavés game, while Mariano makes way for the return of Benzema, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real Madrid have announced their squad to travel to Alavés in LaLiga on Saturday, with the most notable new absentee being Dani Carvajal.
The fullback has recovered from the knock to the head he took against Cultural Leonesa in midweek, but is not in the squad due to a fifth yellow card he picked up versus Athletic Bilbao last Sunday, meaning he is suspended for one match.
Mariano makes way for BBC
However, the BBC (Benzema, Bale and Cristiano) all return after being rested for the Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday, with reserve striker Mariano making way.
Aside from the suspended Carvajal, Madrid are still without Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos and Casemiro, who are all still recovering from injuries.
