Los Blancos climbed above city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Primera Division table with their win at Celta Vigo last Sunday and now have rival Barcelona in their sights.


Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is expected to start Saturday's clash against Mallorca after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Angel Di Maria is out with a hamstring problem and, along with long-term injury victim Iker Casillas, is the only confirmed absentee for the Santiago Bernabeu clash.

Midfielders Jose Luis Marti and Javi Marquez miss out for Mallorca through suspension, but Michael Pereira returns following a one-match ban.

On-loan defender Pedro Geromel has recovered from a hamstring problem and is likely to partner Jose Nunes in central defense.
