Real Madrid - Leganés: Zidane leaves out Vinicius
Vinicius Junior has been left out of the squad to face Leganés despite training as normal on Tuesday. Bale and James are also among the absentees.
Vinicius Junior has been left out of Real Madrid's squad for Wednesday evening's LaLiga clash with Leganés (21:15 CET).
Meanwhile, Luka Modric and Lucas Vázquez are both back in contention for selection against Los Pepineros after recovering from injury.
Vinicius out of Leganés game despite no apparent injury issues
Having trained as normal on Tuesday, Vinicius' absence does not appear to be injury-related - and comes despite the Brazilian featuring for just 11 minutes of the Champions League win over Galatasaray a week ago. Compatriot Rodrygo Goes keeps his place in the squad after starting in Turkey, on the other hand.
Brahim Díaz and Mariano Díaz have also been omitted from the 19-man list, while Gareth Bale again misses out through injury (believed to be bruising to the calf), Álvaro Odriozola is suspended and James Rodríguez is in Colombia for the birth of his child.
Real Madrid squad to face Leganés:
Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Mendy.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.
Forwards: Hazard, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez, Jović and Rodrygo.
