Though the Blancos will rest a number of stars, their team will consist of many first-team regulars

Zinedine Zidane has named an experienced XI in the Copa del Rey round-of-32 first-leg tie against third-division side Fuenlabrada. 

Though Madrid are missing stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos, their manager has opted for a line-up consisting of first-team players rather than members of the club's academy.
