The Copa del Rey may not always take top billing for Real Madrid, but Jose Mourinho indicated from the beginning of the competition that he intends to win this crown. If the Portuguese was having any second thoughts about deploying a strong side in the tournament, a derby fixture against Atletico Madrid will compel him to focus firmly on Thursday evening’s quarter-final first leg encounter.

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to miss the next four months due to a back problem. The Argentine striker may not play again this season. Jerzy Dudek and Pepe are the only other injury concerns. Alvaro Arbeloa returns after a ban.

New signings Juanfran and Elias have both been named in the 20-strong squad to travel to the Bernabeu. Quique Sanchez Flores has no fresh injury worries from Monday’s loss.
