Cristiano and Marcelo return to the fold

Ahead of Madrid's dress rehearsal for the PSG game, Casemiro also returns the squad, while Achraf, Ceballos and Óscar, included against Espanyol, are all left out.

Cristiano and Marcelo return to the fold

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has named his squad to face crosstown neighbours Getafe at the Bernabéu in Matchday 27 of LaLiga.

Ronaldo and Marcelo

The big news comes in the form of the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, rested against Espanyol, and Marcelo, who has recovered from a muscle strain picked up in Real's visit to Betis. Casemiro, however, has been ruled out with stomach problems. 


In terms of the squad-sheet in the Espanyol game, Achraf, Ceballos  and Óscar, who came in to replace Casemiro, all miss out. The omission of Ceballos once again raises questions, particularly in the absence of Kroos and Modric in midfield.

Real Madrid squad:

Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Luca.

Defenders: Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo y Theo.

Midfielders: Casemiro, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco y Kovacic.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Mayoral.
