Luka Modric left out of Real Madrid squad to face Huesca

Zinedine Zidane has left Croatian midfielder Luka Modric out of his match day squad to face Huesca at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night. 

Modric, who played two full games for his national team in midweek, is likely to only be omitted to keep him fresh for games later in the season. 

Rapahel Varane and Marco Asensio have also left out after their exploits with France and Spain respectively in the last few days, while Toni Kroos has been omitted despite being fully fit.

Belgian international Thibaut Courtois misses out due to a thigh problem, with Vinicius Junior and Dani Carvajal also sidelined through injury.
