Cristiano Ronaldo, Keylor Navas and Raphael Varane have returned to Real Madrid's 19-man squad for the visit to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night (10 May) as Los Blancos aim to seize their 3-0 advantage from the first-leg to reach the Champions League final.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao and Mariano will miss the game, with the first two being still on the sidelines and working to recover in time for a possible final with Juventus.

Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the first against Santiago Bernabeu but was rested alongside Navas during the weekend's 4-0 victory over Granada in order to arrive fresh for the decisive visit to the Vicente Calderon.

Yet, Zinedine Zidane decided to make wholesale changes in his line-up for the La Liga encounter, with two fringe players like Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez scoring two goals each to give Real Madrid a comfortable win.

Meanwhile, Varane also missed the victory over Granada after Zidane revealed in the preview of the game that the France international had suffered a recurrence of his recent injury.

However, the centre-back has been training with the rest of the squad in recent days and has thus returned to the squad to face Atletico alongside Ronaldo and Navas.

Zidane also said on Tuesday that Pepe has been passed fit to face Diego Simeone's side, but has finally decided not to rush his return following a month on the sidelines.

Bale and Carvajal also continue in the treatment room while Coentrao and Mariano will miss the game due to technical reasons.

The Real Madrid manager is thus expected to deploy a similar line-up to the one that beat Atletico 3-0 in the first-leg, with Isco covering the gap left by Bale alongside Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Meanwhile, Danilo or Nacho are expected to replace Carvajal in the right-back after the latest already came on from the bench in the first leg following the Spaniard's injury.
