Pick Your Real Madrid Team To Face Osasuna

Los Blancos are looking to keep the pressure on Barcelona at the top of the table...

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini has revealed his squad to face Osasuna on Sunday evening, and both Guti and Alvaro Arbeloa have been included after recently suffering injuries.

Guti had not trained for several days during the week due to a hamstring problem in his left leg, while Arbeloa had been suffering discomfort in his left knee, but both players have overcome the problems and are ready to face Osasuna.

In some further positive news for the trainer, Raul Albiol will be able to line up in defence after serving his one-match ban for an accumulation of five yellow cards against Real Zaragoza last week.

However, Raul, Rafael van der Vaart, Lassana Diarra and Pepe all remain on the sidelines. Both Raul and van der Vaart were forced to come off at La Romareda last weekend with season-ending injuries, while Pepe has missed much of the season following a cruciate ligament injury and Lass continues to suffer with back pains.

Los Blancos have therefore named the following 18-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Dudek

Defenders: Arbeloa, Albiol, Ramos, Marcelo, Metzelder, Garay

Midfielders: Gago, Diarra, Guti, Kaka, Granero, Xabi Alonso, Juanfran

Forwards: Ronaldo, Higuain, Benzema

Please leave your ideal XI in the comments box below, using hyphens to separate positions working from right to left. For example, here is the team that could line-up in a 4-3-1-2 formation:

Casillas - Ramos, Albiol, Garay, Arbeloa - Granero, Xabi Alonso, Gago; Kaka; Ronaldo, Higuain
