Real Madrid will have full squad available against Alavés
With Real Madrid gearing up for the home match against Alavés on Sunday, Zinedine Zidane will be mightily pleased that none of his players picked up any injury in the recent international break.
Key names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Keylor Navas, Isco, Luka Modrić, James Rodríguez are all expected to feature in the upcoming clash. Pepe and Ronaldo had a day off on Thursday but have been training now along with the rest of the squad.
Furthermore, Real Madrid will have all four centre-backs- Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Raphaël Varane and Nacho at the disposal. It is only the fourth time in this season when Zidane will have all four centre-backs available for a particular game. This signifies that injury issues have continued to creep up perpetually. But now with a surplus of centre-backs, Zidane can finally choose a pair for the starting line-up.
However, Casemiro is the only significant name who will be missing the game due to suspension. Nonetheless, with a full strength squad accessible, Real Madrid are expected to grab yet another 3 points from the game against the Basque side.
