With the El Clasico game against Barcelona FC this week, the Galacticos from Real Madrid after trashing the German side in Gelsenkirchen with 6-1 will mix things a little in the first lineup, as Carlo Ancelotti knows only a major miracle can see off his side from the Champions league. On the other side, La liga first place battle is still on, and Real Madrid needs to keep up with the wins , especially in the next round in the biggest match of the season for them.

Probable lineups :
REAL MADRID: Casillas, Varane, Ramos, Coentrão, Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Nacho, Jesé, Morata, Isco, Illarra.
