Clasico squad: Jovic is left out and Mariano comes in

29 Feb 2020

Zinedine Zidane has decided to include Mariano Diaz in Real Madrid‘s squad for El Clasico, while Luka Jovic is left out.

Jovic has been the main backup to Karim Benzema all season, but the responsibility will fall on Mariano should the Frenchman need replaced in the match against Barcelona on Sunday.

Both Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio are out due to injury, while the only other forced absence is that of Rodrygo due to suspension.

The 19-man squad in full is as follows: Thibaut Courtois, Alphonse Areola, Toni Fuidias, Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Isco, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano and Vinicius.
