Isco and Nacho took full part in Real Madrid's final training session ahead of the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich but only the defender was deemed fit enough for the matchday squad.

Real Madrid squad to face Bayern Munich

Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla, Luca Zidane
Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo Hernández
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Asensio, Kovacic, Dani Ceballos
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Borja Mayoral

As well as Isco and Carvajal missing out due to injury, Zidane cannot call upon Marcos Llorente, Vallejo or Achraf. In come Dani Ceballos, after a good showing against Leganés, and striker Borja Mayoral.

Isco and Nacho train, Carvajal absent

Isco suffered a shoulder injury during the first leg in Munich, which Madrid won 1-2, and was replaced by Marco Asensio at half-time. The 26-year-old midfielder was not expected to be fit in time to face Bayern at the Bernabéu, but recovered ahead of schedule to return to training on Sunday. That wasn't enough though to get him into the squad for Tuesday.

Nacho has been absent since picking up a thigh injury in Madrid's victory over Las Palmas at the start of April. His return is a timely boost for Zinedine Zidane, who was forced to play Casemiro as a centre-half in the 2-1 LaLiga win against Leganés on Saturday afternoon.

Real Madrid train at Valdebebas on Monday morning.

Dani Carvajal will not be fit to face Bayern and Nacho is a candidate to take his place on the right side of defence with choices limited.
