Finally, Carlo Ancelotti will have both Diego López and Jesé Rodríguez at his disposal for Sunday's match against Espanyol (19:00 CET).
Ancelotti himself said that López had a virus, also confirming that Casillas will be starting if Diego could not feature at all. And then, Jesé was not included on the team's list after he left the match against Osasuna with a cramp. Apparently, the canterano has improved so well on the last few hours that he will be available.
FC Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid drew at the Vicente Calderón this Saturday, so Real Madrid will have a good chance to cut their lead to three points halfway through the season should they get a win against Espanyol.
