Carlo Ancelotti has named the squad he’s taking with him to Finland for Real Madrid’s European Super Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt tomorrow. Ancelotti has named a 24-man squad for the game against the Europa League champions.
Madrid, of course, qualified for the showpiece event by winning the Champions League in Paris last season, beating Liverpool in the final 1-0 thanks to a goal by Vinicius Junior.

The squad is as follows.
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Luis Lopez
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Jesus Vallejo, Nacho, Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Odriozola, Ferland Mendy
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Lucas Vazquez, Dani Ceballos, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga
Forwards: Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, Mariano Diaz
