Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona 2011, Copa Del Rey Final: Real Madrid Lineup

Jose Mourinho holding nothing back as he looks for his first silverware at Real Madrid

Iker Casillas starts in goal...no surprise there really as the Spanish international has been a rock for Los Blancos all year.

Álvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Ricardo Carvalho and Marcelo makes up the Madrid defense. Arbeola replaced the suspended Raul Albiol who was red carded in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Barcelona. The midfielder is unchanged from the weekend with Pepe, Xabi Alonso and Khedira tasked with dealing with Barcelona's creative trio. 

Just one adjustment up front from Mourinho as he makes one change from his weekend lineup, adding Mesut Özil alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel di Maria. The insertion of Özil early in the second half seemed to liven up the Madrid attack and it looks like he's been rewarded today for his efforts. We'll have to see if he can be as effective from the start tonight.

Real Madrid (4-3-3): Iker Casillas; Álvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Ricardo Carvalho, Marcelo Vieira; Pepe, Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira; Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel di Maria, Mesut Özil.

Bench: Jerzy Dudek; Ezequiel Garay, Kaka, Esteban Granero, Emmanuel Adebayor, Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain
