Despite hopes that Eden Hazard would be able to play some sort of part in Real Madrid’s first leg clash with Liverpool, Zinedine Zidane has opted to leave him out of the squad.
The Frenchman’s decision appears to be taken with the Belgian’s long-term fitness in mind, given his injury problems with the club so far.
On a positive note for Los Blancos, Fede Valverde has returned to the squad.
The Uruguayan has recovered quickly from the ailment that he suffered against Celta Vigo and gives Madrid another option in midfield.
Real Madrid’s squad list for Liverpool first leg:
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Diego Altube.
Defenders: Eder Militao, Raphael Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Alvaro Odriozola, Ferland Mendy.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Isco, Sergio Arribas.
Forwards: Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius, Mariano Diaz, Rodrygo.
