Carvajal and Hazard out for Madrid

Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard have both been left out of the squad for the trip to the island stadium of Son Moix. The Spanish defender has been rested with minds on the crucial Champions League game on Tuesday against Galatasaray, while the Belgian winger is being given some time off after having become a father for the fourth time.

Other notable changes to the group include the appearance of Brahim's name, for the first time this season, along with Mariano. Both Marcelo and Mendy are back in after their injuries and, as expected, there is no sign of Nacho, Kroos, Modric, Lucas Vázquez or Bale.
