In Copa del Rey Los Che have overcome Llagostera and Osasuna without any problems.
The winner of this pair will face the winner of the Barcelona-Malaga clash in the semi-final.
Real Madrid welcomes back C. Ronaldo and Antonio Adan after their suspensions. After Tuesday’s Copa del Rey quarter-final first leg against Valencia, Jose Mourinho could once again start rumours about his conflict with the first team kipper Iker Casillas if he will put Adan in the starting squad. First team defender Sergio Ramos will remain sidelined, as he serves the second of his five-match ban. Other vital central def Pepe is out of the game due to injury. Left-back Marcelo could make his first appearance since he suffered a broken foot in October. But Fabio Coentrao is more likely to start against strong rival.
Valencia are going to play without captain David Albelda, cause he got a calf problem after Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Sevilla. Sergio Canales is out cause of knee injury and Jeremy Mathieu has Achilles problem. Sofiane Feghouli is absent due to playing for Algeria in the African Cup of Nations.
