No new injury worries for Real ahead of United showdown

03 March 2013 06:16

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has called upon all of his 24-man first-team squad for their decisive Champions League clash with Manchester United on Tuesday.

Captain Iker Casillas is the only member of the squad unavailable through injury, but he will travel with the squad to cheer them on just as he did for last week's Copa del Rey semi-final second-leg in Barcelona.

The tie is evenly balanced after a 1-1 draw in the first-leg at the Santiago Bernabeu three weeks ago, but since then Madrid's spirits have been lifted by back-to-back victories over Barca.

Mourinho also took the opportunity to rest a number of key players for the 2-1 victory over the Catalans on Saturday, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso and Mesut Ozil set to be recalled to the starting line-up at Old Trafford.
