thumbnail Hello,

Jose Mourinho has named an attacking line-up as the capital club travel a short distance to face their local rivals ahead of Barcelona's clash at home to Real Sociedad on Saturday

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has picked both Kaka and Mesut Ozil in an attacking line-up to face Getafe on Saturday.

It had previously been said that the Brazilian and the German were incompatible, but the duo have turned in some impressive performances together of late and line up with Cristiano Ronaldo in a trident of forwards behind lone striker Karim Benzema at the Coliseum on Saturday evening.

Elsewhere, Lass Diarra starts in midfield alongside Xabi Alonso, who had been doubtful after picking up an injury last weekend, while Fabio Coentrao begins at left-back in place of the injured Marcelo.

Madrid are currently seven points clear of fierce rivals Barcelona, with the Catalans set to host Real Sociedad later on Saturday.

Getafe (4-2-3-1): Moya; Valera, Cata Diaz, Miguel Torres, Masilela; Casquero, Juan Rodriguez; Pedro Rios, Barrada, Diego Castro; Miku

Subs: Codina, Arizmendi, Gavilan, Lacen, Perez, Mane, Sarabia

Real Madrid (4-2-3-1): Casillas; Coentrao, Pepe, Ramos, Arbeloa; Lass, Xabi Alonso; Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Ozil; Benzema

Subs: Adan, Sahin, Granero, Albiol, Varane, Higuain, Callejon
