Jose Mourinho's side have won their last seven matches in all competitions and will hope to continue that impressive run of form against Los Blanquillos on Saturday


Zaragoza playmaker Apono is available for the Primera Division encounter against Real Madrid after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Romaric (thigh) also returns following a three-month absence but Stefan Babovic is suspended.

Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has recovered from a hand injury and could make his first start in goal since January.

Boss Jose Mourinho has no injury worries but is likely to rotate his squad in order to prioritise Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg clash against Galatasaray.
