Real Madrid have no fresh injury concerns for Tuesday's clash with Borussia Dortmund at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Marcelo, Fabio Coentrao and Sami Khedira remain out, but Alvaro Arbeloa is available after making his comeback from a hamstring injury in Saturday's win over Zaragoza.

Midfielder Xabi Alonso returns after serving a domestic suspension at the weekend, while Raphael Varane may get the nod over Raul Albiol in central defence.

Borussia Dortmund are hopeful that captain Sebastian Kehl will be fit to play despite suffering a facial injury in Saturday's goalless draw with Stuttgart.

The 32-year-old had a special protective mask fitted on Sunday, meaning he could start in the Spanish capital, while fellow midfielder Sven Bender may also return from a calf strain.
