Ronaldo and Casillas named in strong Real Madrid squad for Copa del Rey clash

Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas have both been named in a strong Real Madrid squad for Wednesday’s Copa Del Rey clash.

The duo have been included in the 20-man group for the second-leg match with Celta Vigo at Santiago Bernabeu, as Jose Mourinho’s men look to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg.

The only notable absentees from the side will be Pepe, who underwent ankle surgery last week, and Fabio Coentrao, who remains a long-term casualty for los Blancos. Marcelo, meanwhile, has not been risked after he returned to training this week following a broken foot.

Real Madrid squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Adam, Jesus.

Defenders: Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos, Ricardo Carvalho, Alvaro Arbeloa, Raul Albiol, Nacho.

Midfielders: Sami Khedira, Kaka, Mesut Ozil, Xabi Alonso, Michael Essien, Luka Modric, Angel Di Maria, Jose Callejon.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain.
