Marcelo in, Bale out vs Roma

Marcelo is included in Real Madrid’s squad for their Champions League last-16 first leg at Roma on Wednesday, but Gareth Bale remains absent.

The left-back missed Los Blancos’ 4-2 victory over Athletic Bilbao in La Liga on Saturday with a shoulder injury, but he has been given the green light to feature against the Italians.

However, there is no such luck for Gareth Bale, who continues to nurse a calf injury – suffered a month ago in the 5-1 win against Sporting Gijon on January 17.

Madrid squad vs Roma in full: Navas, Casilla, Yanez; Ramos, Varane, Arbeloa, Carvajal, Danilo, Marcelo, Nacho, Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, James, Modric, Kovacic; Ronaldo, Benzema, Jese, Vazquez
