Zidane leaves Bale at home, Ramos travels despite suspension
Zinedine Zidane has once again left out Gareth Bale. The Welshman is not part of the 24 man squad (23 plus Ramos) which the Real Madrid boss has selected for this Friday's Champions League last 16 second leg clash with Man City.
The winger is one of the first team players to miss out along with James Rodriguez and Mariano. Altube and Javi Hernandez make the squad though. Ramos has asked to travel with the squad despite being suspended.
Eden Hazard is also available despite his constant injuries. The Belgian has been training and he carried out the training session this Wednesday. His ankle has continued to prevent him from being 100%.
Real Madrid are planning to travel to Manchester at around 10am. They will train at the Etihad Stadium at around 7pm local time, an hour before kick off. The players will spend the day at The Lowry hotel where Jose Mourinho lived when he was the United manager.
