Real Madrid have no fresh injury worries ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Alcoyano at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Boss Jose Mourinho is likely to name a much changed side from the one that lost 1-0 to Betis on Saturday, so there could be rare starts for Kaka, Jose Callejon, Ricardo Carvalho, Raul Albiol and Alvaro Morata.

Gonzalo Higuain, Marcelo and Michael Essien all remain sidelined through injury.

Alcoyano could make changes to the team that drew with Villarreal’s reserves at the weekend as they look to overturn a 4-1 deficit from the first-leg.
