Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has been handed a boost ahead of Sunday's Primera Division clash with Levante, with key duo Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria returning to full fitness.

Germany international Khedira has been missing from action since early January with an ankle injury, while Di Maria has been nursing a thigh problem and is yet to feature in 2012. Both players are expected to be named on the bench.

The game is likely to come too soon for left-back Marcelo, who has been struggling with a thigh problem, while Hamit Altintop (calf) is also out.

Levante duo Jose Javier Barkero and Asier del Horno could recover from injury in time to make the trip to the capital.

Defender Juanfran is struggling with a foot complaint and is unlikely to feature, while Xavi Torres is suspended.
