Real Madrid to include injured star in Bayern Munich squad

Real Madrid will be at full power for their UEFA Champions League semi final second leg against Bayern Munich.

Los Blancos have already ticked a major box in their campaign after clinching the La Liga title this weekend.

However, the traditional celebrations have been placed on hold, ahead of their crunch tie with the Bavarians.

A 2-2 first leg draw at the Allianz Arena means the reverse fixture is tightly balanced and Carlo Ancelotti will need to make some key selection calls.

The Italian was able to rotate for the weekend league win over Cadiz as his star players rested.

Ancelotti has not flagged up any fresh injuries, but he has already indicated Thibaut Courtois will not play against Bayern, despite impressing against Cadiz.

The Belgian stopper has only just returned from a second knee injury of the campaign but he will be included in the squad.

Ancelotti is expected to mirror his approach from the first leg, by including Courtois and long term absentee David Alaba, despite neither player being ready to feature.

Ancelotti wants to promote a united front in big games where all first team players are involved.
