Real Madrid's potential starters against Manchester United and FC Barcelona took two weeks out of the team to recover from their small injuries. Now, both of them are set to start Real Madrid's biggest games of the season. Los blancos could have no chance of winning a cup this season if they don't manage to recover from the 1-1 draws at the Bernabéu in the Copa del Rey and Champions League tie.

Given Real Madrid's recent struggles, Mourinho could be anxious to put Benzema and Alonso back in the lineup for those crucial matches.
