After the victory against Athletic Bilbao in the opening match of the league, Real Madrid will be back in action against Almeria on Saturday. The Merengues trained for this match today, and the club has now announced the squad that will be traveling to Almeria for this match.

Goalkeepers

  1. Andriy Lunin
  2. Kepa Arrizabalaga
  3. Fran Gonzalez

Defenders

  1. Dani Carvajal
  2. David Alaba
  3. Nacho Fernandez
  4. Alvaro Odriozola
  5. Lucas Vazquez
  6. Fran García
  7. Antonio Rüdiger

Midfielders

  1. Jude Bellingham
  2. Toni Kroos
  3. Luka Modrić
  4. Eduardo Camavinga
  5. Federico Valverde
  6. Aurelien Tchouameni
  7. Nico Paz

Attackers

  1. Vinicius Junior
  2. Rodrygo Goes
  3. Joselu
  4. Brahim Diaz

These 21 players will be representing Real Madrid in this match against Almeria. There are a number of notable absences in the Real Madrid squad, as Thibaut Courtois, Ferland Mendy, Dani Ceballos, and Eder Militao all miss the game due to injuries.

The goalkeeping situation will be interesting for this match, as Kepa has trained with the squad for this match, but Ancelotti has already stated that Lunin will be starting this game. It remains to be seen which of the two goalkeepers Ancelotti will favor throughout the upcoming season.

There are only three centre-backs in this squad, and only one left-back. Thus, the defensive line of the team is thinner than it seems. Camavinga can play at left-back if necessary, but Marvel, who has been training with the first team since Militao’s injury, has not been called up by Ancelotti.

There will also be a change in the midfield, as Camavinga was reported to be suffering from muscle fatigue in training, and Ancelotti may remain cautious with him. Otherwise, Tchouameni, Valverde, and Bellingham may all start the match. Nico Paz may also feature in this match if the situation allows.

The Brazilian duo of Vinicius and Rodrygo would probably start the match, and may later be joined by Joselu if the team needs a goal.
