Benzema, Ronaldo in Real Madrid squad to face Manchester City

Updated: 

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have been included in the Real Madrid squad to face Manchester City on Tuesday.

Zinedine Zidane has included the whole of the first-team squad for the trip to the Etihad Stadium for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Ronaldo sat out the 3-2 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday with a thigh complaint, while Benzema was taken off as a precaution after taking a knock to his knee, but both are expected to play a part against Manuel Pellegrini's side.

There are also concerns over Pepe, who has only partly trained in the past week, but the Portugal centre-back is also included.

Madrid squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla, Ruben Yanez.

Defenders: Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Arbeloa, Danilo.

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Casemiro, Mateo Kovacic, Luka Modric, Isco.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Lucas Vazquez, Jese Rodriguez, Borja Mayoral.
