Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard in Real Madrid squad for El Clasico

1 min read

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has included both Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard in his squad for Sunday afternoon’s La Liga contest against Barcelona.

Carvajal has recently been absent due to a calf problem, missing his side’s last four league matches, while Hazard has been struggling with a muscular issue that he picked up on international duty.

However, both players trained with the first team on Saturday afternoon, and the pair have been named in the squad for El Clasico at Camp Nou.

Karim Benzema, meanwhile, is also available for selection despite concerns that a foot problem would force the France international to miss the league affair.

Los Blancos remain without the services of Gareth Bale, Isco, Luka Jovic and Dani Ceballos through injury, which has opened the door for Antonio Blanco to be included.

Real Madrid have won each of their last three league meetings against Barcelona, including a 3-1 victory at Camp Nou in the corresponding match last season.

Full squad: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Luis Lopez, Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Jesus Vallejo, Nacho, Marcelo, Lucas Vazquez, Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Antonio Blanco, Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, Mariano Diaz
