Cristiano Ronaldo will not play tomorrow at the Anoeta. Carlo Ancelloti, who said he would give the Portugal player a break if his knee problems persisted, announced in his pre-match press conference that he would not be included in the squad. This comes after announcing before today's training session that despite not training, the forward was fine.

"He will be fresher for Tuesday. It's for this, to give him a few more days of rest", said Ancelotti when explaining the decision.

The Real Madrid squad reads:

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Diego López and Jesús Fernández.

Defenders: Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Carvajal and Nacho.

Midfielders: Bale, Xabi Alonso, Casemiro, Modric, Di María, Isco, Illarra and Medrán

Forwards: Benzema, Morata and Willian José.
