Real Madrid plays tonight (05:00 CET) in its second preseason game in the United States against Mexican team Santos Laguna. Mourinho will be able to count on all of his players as Di María, Varane and Lass have recovered well from the game against the LA Galaxy--after the game, they ended up a little bit sore.
It's likely that the Portuguese coach will repeat the same two teams he used against the MLS team, starting Callejón, Higuaín, Di María and the other better prepared players (they had two more weeks of training sessions) and introducing Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramos, Pepe, Özil or Khedira later on.
It will also be interesting to see if Morata and Callejón keep their winning streaks going, but the focus will once again be on Kaká and Nuri Sahin. The Turkish player will likely be forced to play left back once again while Kaka's approach to the preseason games has yet to be seen.
