Real Madrid: Isco out, Nacho in

Real Madrid have welcomed defender Nacho Fernandez back into their squad for their Champions League semi-final with Bayern Munich but Isco misses out.

Playmaker Isco is unavailable with a shoulder injury sustained during last week’s first leg against the German champions and has not recovered in time for the return game in Madrid.

28-year-old Nacho returns to the fold following an injury sustained against Las Palmas at the end of March, which Diario AS state was the first injury of his playing career.

The Spain international could play at right-back due to Dani Carvajal’s unavailability with a thigh injury and Achraf Hakimi not included in the squad list.

Real Madrid squad: Navas, Casilla, Luca; Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Asensio, Kovacic, Ceballos; Ronaldo, Benzema, Vazquez, Bale, Borja Mayoral
