Jose Mourinho's men have suffered a dip in form recently, picking up just two wins from their last six fixtures in all competitions.

However, the hosts are boosted by the return of talismanic forward Cristiano Ronaldo following suspension, along with back-up goalkeeper Antonio Adan, who has also completed a ban.

Sergio Ramos serves the second game of a five-match suspension, while fellow defender Pepe is still on the treatment table following surgery on his ankle.

Left-back Marcelo is likely to be named amongst the substitutes as he closes in on full fitness, after recovering from a broken foot.

Los Che will take on the La Liga champions minus the services of skipper David Albelda, who suffered a calf injury in the 2-0 victory over Sevilla on Saturday.

Attacking midfielder Sofiane Feghouli has linked up with Algeria ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Sergio Canales (knee) and Jeremy Mathieu (Achilles) miss out again.
