Keylor Navas, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric have all been rested for Real Madrid's LaLiga clash with Espanyol at the Bernabéu on Saturday (16:15 CET).
Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane had already confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he would be rotating players this weekend.
Bale makes comeback
However, Welshman Gareth Bale returns to the Real squad after three months out with an ankle tendon injury suffered late last year.
Danilo, Ramos, Coentrao out too
Also left off Real's list for the visit of Los Pericos are Danilo, who is still recovering from an ankle knock, and Sergio Ramos, who picked up a hip issue against Napoli.
There is no place for Fabio Coentrao either, with the Portuguese full-back again unable to take part in training on Friday.
Real Madrid squad to face Espanyol:
Goalkeepers: Casilla, Yáñez, Luca.
Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo.
Midfielders: Kroos, Kovacic, Casemiro, Asensio, Isco, James.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Vázquez, Morata, Mariano.
