Gareth Bale, yes. Eden Hazard, no. Zinedine Zidane has named his squad for Real Madrid's game in Pamplona on Sunday against Osasuna.

The presence of Wales forward Bale is the big news, while Belgium's Hazard will have to wait a little longer to make his return to competitive action. 

Bale has missed Madrid's last four games following his latest injury but he's now back to full fitness and available for Zidane as Madrid look to tighten their grip on top spot. 

Hazard is back in training -- and has been since Jan. 30 -- but is not yet deemed ready to make his return this weekend. He's likely to be back for Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu next week. 

Rodrygo Goes, Brahim and Nacho have all been left out. 

The squad is: Courtois, Areola and Altube; Carvajal, Militao, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Mendy; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Fede Valverde and Isco; and Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez, Jovic and Vinicius.
