Strikers included for Madrid

Both Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema have been passed fit to make Real Madrid’s squad for tomorrow’s game with Real Valladolid.

The duo were thought to be at risk of missing out on Saturday’s home fixture, having missed Friday morning’s training.

However, both the Argentine, who skipped today’s workout with back pain and Benzema, out for an unspecified reason, have been included in Jose Mourinho’s 20-man squad for this weekend.

Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Arbeloa and Marcelo all miss out through injury.

Real Madrid squad to face Real Valladolid: Casillas, Diego Lopez, Jesus, Varane, Pepe, Coentrão, Carvalho, Nacho, Khedira, Kaka, Ozil, Xabi Alonso, Essien, Modric, Callejon, Di Maria, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuain, Morata
