Iker Casillas is back in the squad as Real Madrid look for three points against Levante in the Spanish La Liga.
Casillas has been missing for several weeks through a thumb injury, and despite returning to training last week, was not picked for the league game against Real Zaragoza last weekend as well as the Champions League tie against Galatasaray in midweek.

Jose Mourinho has made it clear he considers Diego Lopez his No.1 goalkeeper, so it will be interesting to see whether Casillas plays any part in the games coming up in the next couple of months.
"He's evolved better this week and we're pleased to have him with us because we've got two decisive months ahead," Real Assistant manager Aitor Karanka said about Casillas. "He's ready to play and he's going to be called up.
"Having him with us is a joy and I don't have to evaluate what Sacchi said about how he trains. He's important for us, for the team and for everyone. The coaching staff wants the best for the team and he won't play tomorrow (Saturday), but you never know what will happen in the future."
Real are currently 13 points behind leaders Barcelona, but need to win to stay in second place ahead of Atletico Madrid. Levante are in tenth on 40 points, and Karanka does not expect an easy outing against them.
"It's a team that's always there," he said. "They have experienced players that give their all in every game. It'll be tough because they're fighting to classify for the Europa League and they've played well in this competition this year. Real Madrid has players who play less and there is no better motivation for them than to play 100 percent at these types of matches."
Mourinho is again likely to rest some of his key players, although the Champions League tie against Galatasaray is as good as sealed following their 3-0 win in the first leg at the Berbnabeu.
Expected lineups: Real Madrid: Diego Lopez; Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Essien, Alonso; Callejon, Modric, Ronaldo; Higuain.
Levante: Munua; Lell, Ballesteros, Vyntra, Juanfran; Diop, Iborra; Rios, Michel, Garcia; Aquafresca.
Prediction: 4-1 to Real
