Real announce 19-man squad for Basel

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has announced a 19-man squad for Tuesday’s game with Basel.

The fixture is the first in the group stages of the Champions League and Ancelotti’s selection is largely as expected, with Iker Casillas and Karim Benzema both involved despite criticism from fans during the 2-1 defeat to cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

The full squad is:

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas, Pacheco

Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao, Marcelo, Arbeloa, Nacho

Midfielders: Bale, Kroos, James Rodriguez, Modric, Isco, Illarra

Forwards: Ronaldo, Benzema, Hernandez
