Real Madrid are in dreamland. Following a Champion League and La Liga win last season, they have started their season in faultless fashion. Los Blancos have won all five of their games in the league, and recorded a 0-3 win against Celtic to open their Champions League calendar.

Tomorrow, they will face arguably their biggest test of the season so far, hosting RB Leipzig at the Santiago Bernabeu. The squad for the game has been announced.

Karim Benzema is injured, and will miss this UCL headliner, along with Eder Militao and Lucas Vazquez. Madrid do have players ready to fill in for them, but this triple blow, ahead of the Atletico Madrid clash on the weekend, is concerning.

All midfielders are fit and ready to go for the game, with Federico Valverde coming off a sensational weekend against RCD Mallorca.

Rodrygo had quite the second half during that game, playing as the false 9. He has been called up, too, unsurprisingly. He will likely compete with Eden Hazard for that centre-forward spot.

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
