The very first question thrown at Mourinho by reporters was "...who will play tomorrow". The Real Madrid Coach was quick & straight "...the same 11 as always". This reaffirms speculation that both Gonzalo Higuain & Sami Khedira have recovered in time to be available & included in the REAL MADRID STARTING 11 against FC Barcelona.
Therefore, taking Jose Mourinho´s words to be accurate & barring any last minute unknowns, this will be the Real Madrid side that starts against FC BARCELONA:

Casillas, Ramos, Pepe, Carvalho, Marcelo, Khedira, X Alonso, Ozil, Di Maria, Cristiano Ronaldo & Higuain.
FC Barcelona Coach Pep Guardiola will give his Press Conference around 20.00 & will certainly be asked the same question about his starting 11. The only curiosity to know is if Guardiola will put in a defensive player to halt the already given & known Real Madrid "attacking profile" 11. There is speculation from Barcelona that Guardiola may put in Keita in place of attacker Pedro. We will know later tonight. Tweet
