Eden Hazard is the notable absentee from Zinedine Zidane‘s 24-man squad for Thursday night’s match against Getafe at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
The Frenchman made clear during Wednesday’s pre-match press conference that Real Madrid need to go slowly with Hazard as he still looks to get back to 100 percent after recovering from ankle surgery.
Meanwhile, Zidane has opted to include Lucas Vazquez and Luka Jovic in the squad, with both having recovered from their respective injuries.
Real Madrid’s squad to face Getafe is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Alphonse Areola, Diego Altube.
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, James Rodriguez, Isco.
Forwards: Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Luka Jovic, Marco Asensio, Brahim Diaz, Mariano Diaz, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes.
