Los Merengues lost 2-1 to Os Celestes in the first leg at Balaidos on December 12 and will seal their progression to the quarter-finals of the competition if they score at least one goal without conceding.

Jose Mourinho's side are defending a 31-match unbeaten run at the Bernabeu, so the odds are stacked against the Galicians, who have only recorded one victory on the road this season.

In team news, Mourinho welcomes back Sergio Ramos after the defender was suspended for Sunday's 4-3 win over Real Sociedad.

Antonio Adan could retain his place in goal ahead of Iker Casillas, despite picking up a red card against Erreala as it does not make him ineligible for the cup-tie.

The Madrid boss has no new injury concerns, but he is still without defensive trio Pepe, Marcelo and Fabio Coentrao.
