Madrid all out for Celta

Jose Mourinho has selected his strongest possible Real Madrid squad for the second leg of their Cup clash with Celta Vigo.

Los Blancos are chasing the two-legged Last 16 encounter, after falling to a 2-1 defeat at Balaidos at the end of 2012.

In response, Mourinho has named his strongest possible squad for Wednesday’s return leg. For the 20-man selection, the Portuguese is again lightest in defence, missing the injured duo of Pepe and Fabio Coentrao, whilst Marcelo is absent too having only just returned to full training yesterday.

Real Madrid squad to face Celta Vigo: Casillas, Adan, Jesus, Varane, Ramos, Carvalho, Arbeloa, Albiol y Nacho, Khedira, Kaka, Ozil, Alonso, Essien, Modric, Callejon, Di Maria, Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuain
