Karim Benzema has been named on the Real Madrid bench for Sunday's La Liga home encounter with Deportivo La Coruna.

The players that compose the club's 'BBC' strikeforce have rarely all been available at the same time over the last 10 months due to injuries and suspension.

However, the trio are currently available, but Zinedine Zidane has opted to utilise just Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale from the off, with Benzema among the subs.

Marco Asensio, who celebrates his 22nd birthday on Sunday, is also on the bench alongside Isco.

Sergio Ramos, meanwhile, remains out of action due to injury as Los Blancos desperately atempt to get back to winning ways in the league.

Relegation battlers Deportivo are without attacking midfielder Federico Cartabia, who is injured.

Defenders Raul Albentosa and Sidnei are also out, while Federico Valverde is ineligible to face his parent club.

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro; Mayoral, Ronaldo, Bale
Subs: Casilla, Benzema, Theo, Lucas, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic

Deportivo La Coruna: Ruben; Juanfran, Schar, One, Luisinho; Guilherme, Borges, Mosquera; Adrian, Lucas, Andone
Subs: Pantilimon, Navarro, Colak, Gil, Bakkali, Valle, Edu
