OFFICIAL: Casemiro returns to Real Madrid squad for Inter Milan clash


Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is in line to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday for the game against Inter Milan after being added to the squad.

The Brazil international was confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus prior to the international break, missing Madrid’s last two games against Valencia and Villarreal while also not taking a part in any Brazil’s last two games.

However, he is set to be involved again for the club when they play Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday night, a game which is crucial for both clubs in their hope to qualify for the next stage of the competition.

Youngster Hugo Duro has also been given the chance to travel with the first team due to the absence of Karim Benzema and Luka Jovic.

Duro has been playing for Castilla for the past three months but that could be all that he needs to make his debut for the senior side on Wednesday.

Here is the full squad called up by manager Zinedine Zidane for the trip to Italy:

Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Diego Altube

Defenders: Dani Carvajal, Nacho Fernandez, Raphael Varane, Marcelo, Ferland Mendy, Victor Chust

Midfielders: Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Martin Odegaard, Isco

Forwards: Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius Junior, Mariano Diaz, Rodrygo Goes, Hugo Duro
