Luka Modric returns to Real Madrid squad for Villarreal clash

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has recalled Luka Modric to the match day squad for tonight's clash with Villarreal.

The Croatian international missed last weekend's 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid through suspension, following a red card in their opening day win at Celta Vigo.

Defender Nacho Fernandez misses the trip to El Madrigal due to a minor thigh injury, but other than that, Zidane has a fully fit squad to pick from as they prepare to face Javi Calleja's side.


GOALKEEPERS: Thibaut Courtois, Keylor Navas, Diego Altube

DEFENDERS: Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Alvaro Odriozola, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy

MIDFIELDERS: Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde

FORWARDS: Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior, Luka Jovic, Lucas Vazquez
