Spanish tabloid As informs in today's edition that Kaka' and Özil will be starting Saturday's Clásico against Guardiola's FC Barcelona.

That would mean Di María will wait for his chance in the bench. Mourinho would use him as a catalyst. The Argentinian player has been used in that role lately after his recovery, since he doesn't seem to be fit for 90 minutes.

Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo would also start upfront, with Khedira allegedly starting alongside Xabi Alonso. The only other doubt would be who starts at the left back position, with Coentrao and Marcelo fighting for that spot.
