Three stars missing as Zidane announces a 20-man squad for Roma’s friendly

Real Madrid will face AS Roma in their last pre-season game at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. Zinedine Zidane releases a 20-man squad for the game and surprisingly included Gareth Bale after missing out on the last game.

Just like James Rodriguez and Mariano Diaz, Bale was omitted from the squad which took on Red Bull Salzburg, though the former pair still find themselves out of the Real Madrid picture. Ferland Mendy, Brahim Diaz, and Marco Asensio are all out due to injury, as is Sergio Ramos. Juvenil A goalkeeper Toni Fuidias makes the step up as a replacement for Andriy Lunin.

Real Madrid will be looking to replicate their wonderful performance in Salzburg against Roma. The Los Blancos defence have been under serious criticism after conceding lots of goals during the pre-season especially the seven goals they conceded against their La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.


Zidane will be hoping his defence can pull off another strong performance against the Giallorossi.

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Thibaut Courtois, Toni Fuidias
Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Raphael Varane, Nacho Fernandez, Marcelo, Alvaro Odriozola.
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Isco.
Forwards: Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Luka Jovic, Vinicius Jr.
