Real Madrid take on Numancia in the opening leg of their Copa del Rey tie and Los Blancos will be expected to take care of business even though they’ll be without key starters Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Sergio Ramos or Cristiano Ronaldo, who will rest and get ready for Sunday’s away match against Celta in La Liga.
It will be interesting to see if the youngsters can get the job done considering that the first team has been struggling all season long. Gareth Bale will also be back in shape after playing some minutes in the past few games and should be starting soon as striker Karim Benzema will be out for a while with a hamstring injury he picked up in El Clasico.
