Real Madrid are already without Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos for the La Liga clash with Ronaldo now left out by Zinedine Zidane
Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Real Madrid squad for their crucial clash with Deportivo. Los Blancos dropped to second in the La Liga table on Sunday following their dramatic El Clasico defeat to Barcelona.
Real return to action on Wednesday night but will be without their talisman.
Ronaldo was not named in Zinedine Zidane’s 19-man squad, despite Real Madrid already without Gareth Bale through injury and Skipper Sergio Ramos who won’t make the trip either after being sent off against Barca. Toni Kroos has also been left out of the squad by Zidane.
Marco Asensio, who has impressed off the bench in recent weeks, is likely to come into the starting line-up, alongside James Rodriguez.
Real Madrid squad
Navas, Casilla, Yanez, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Danilo, Tejero, James, Casermiro, Kovacic, Modric, Asensio, Isco, Benzema, Lucas Vasquez, Mariano, Morata.
