Llorente y Mayoral.

Borja Mayoral and Marcos Llorente have both been omitted from Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane’s 19-player squad for the Spanish Super Cup first leg match against Barcelona in Camp Nou, joining the injured Jesús Vallejo and suspended Luka Modric on the sidelines.

The two Real Madrid academy products were also left out of the squad for the European Super Cup victory over Manchester United and face a struggle to break into Zidane’s first-team plans for the 2017-18 season after returning from loans at Wolfsburg and Alavés respectively.

Dani Ceballos, who also missed out in Skopje, has been included in the list and could make his competitive debut in Camp Nou. Also making the squad is Zidane’s son, Luca, who will travel as the third keeper behind Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla.
