That dearth of options available to Zidane has disrupted his plans, but the returning Casemiro is back, alongside Isco, with Luka Modric rested for this game.

B team stars Victor Chust, Sergio Arribas, Antonio Blanco and Miguel Gutierrez has all been called up.

Raphael Varane, Dani Carvajal and Nacho Fernandez are included, in a boost to Zidane’s defensive options, but he will need to shuffle his pack once again as they head down to Andalucia.
