Hazard out but Odegaard makes Zidane's first squad of the season

Eden Hazard is out of Zinedine Zidane's first squad list of the new season with the Belgian still not fully fit. Mariano, Asensio, Lucas Vázquez and Isco who are still recovering from a series of knocks also miss out on the game in San Sebastian.

The good news for the French coach is that both Odegaard and Borja Mayoral have been declared fit to travel with Mayoral now ahead of Serbian striker Jovic in the pecking order for Zidane with the former Eintracht Frankfurt forward being omitted by the head coach

After suffering a knock in the midweek friendly against Getafe, Militao is another player who will have to sit this game out with the Brazilian still recovering from a knock sustained in Tuesday's game.
