Zinedine Zidane has welcomed back Mateo Kovacic and Keylor Navas to the match day squad for the game against Málaga but has lost Marco Asensio to injury and has decided against risking Sergio Ramos in the Bernabéu as the captain recovers from a fractured nose sustained in the Madrid derby.
Gareth Bale has also been left out as he continues his recovery from a muscle problem while Achraf Hakimi was omitted for technical reasons.
Kovacic is back in contention for a place after missing more than two months with a knee injury while Navas, who has been absent for several weeks with a muscle strain picked up on international duty, is also available again.
Nacho is suspended on Saturday leaving Zidane a little light at the back with Jesús Vallejo and Raphael Varane to start in the centre.
