Real Madrid squad & team news
Carlo Ancelotti announced a 23-man squad for the game, with Karim Benzema back in the roster after sitting out the league game against Getafe over the weekend.

Eder Militao – the goalscorer at the weekend – might be rested as he has complained of a muscular problem. That means Antonio Rudiger and David Alaba might start at the heart of the defence with Ferland Mendy at left-back.
