Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have been left out of the squad for a rest, while Gareth Bale is injured, so none of the BBC forward line is available. 

Meanwhile Luka Modric, the team's key player in midfield, has also been left out, with Coentrao.

Zidane is conscious the upcoming Club World Cup will take a toll on the players so is getting some early rest in. 

The squad is:

Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla, Yanez.

Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Danilo.

Midfielders: Kroos, James, Casemiro, Kovacic, Asensio, Isco.

Forwards: Morata, Lucas Vázquez, Mariano.
