This time instead of providing quotes to his press conference - which is held the day before each la Liga fixture, I figured why not let the man himself do the talking. So without further ado, take it away Special One!

You realize that he basically has these scripted out before hand right? He's pretty calculating that way, though I guess one of my favorite lines is when he talks about the brawl between Spain and Chile during that friendly. That when Spain does it - it's a sign of unity - that they are a band of brothers. Yet, when they do that sort of crap with Real Madrid we are nothing more than thugs or villains.

So a total of three players out for today's match.

* Marcelo Pepe (Hamstring)
* Fabio Coentrao (Hamstring)
* Sami Khedira (Match Ban, Red Card)

Also Real Madrid Youth player Tomas Mejias has traveled with the team as well. Now it'll be remain to be seen if he makes the bench come game time - though being shorthanded 3 players it's quite possible he'll make the 18. Playing time might be another matter.
