Real Madrid welcome back host of star names ahead of La Liga finale


Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane

La Liga table-toppers Real Madrid have today announced their squad for this weekend’s crucial trip to Malaga, and there is good news all-round for fans of the Bernabeu side.


Three key names have been included in the Blancos squad following injury layoffs, in the form of Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal and James Rodriguez.

Bale has been absent since last month having torn his calf, while Rodriguez missed Zidane’s side’s midweek thumping of Celta Vigo as a precaution.

Surprise inclusion

One name, however, that will have supporters of Madrid jumping for joy is that of Dani Carvajal, who had been previously listed as a doubt for the club’s Champions League final showdown with Juventus on June 3rd.

The Spaniard has recovered from a hamstring problem picked up during his side’s victory over rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, with players and fans alike breathing a sigh of relief today following the shaky performances of late from stand-in Danilo.

Final day

Zidane’s side will head to Andalusia knowing that a solitary point will be enough to seal the Liga title for the club for the first time since 2012.

Nearest challengers Barcelona, meanwhile, sitting three points adrift of their fierce rivals, welcome Eibar to the Camp Nou.

Both games will kick off at 7pm tomorrow evening.
