Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema have all been left out of Real Madrid's squad to play Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday evening, as Zinedine Zidane shuffles his pack ahead of a hectic festive schedule.Following demanding encounters against Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund over the past week, Los Blancos' six-point lead at the top of LaLiga has afforded the Frenchman the opportunity to rest the star trio ahead of mid-December's Club World Cup.Mariano will get another chance to stake his claim following a hat-trick in the recent Copa del Rey game against Cultural Leonesa.First-team duo Gareth Bale and Fabio Coentrao will also miss the match against Gaizka Garitano's men with ankle and muscle injuries respectively.

Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Yanez
Defenders: Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo and Danilo
