Real Madrid Vs. Barcelona 2012, Copa Del Rey Quarterfinals: Merengues Lineup

The trivote has returned, and so has Ricardo Carvalho. Surprises galore from Jose Mourinho, who has selected a very interesting Real Madrid lineup for the Copa Del Rey clash with Barcelona. Carvalho will partner Sergio Ramos in defense, while Fabio Coentrao and Hamit Altintop get surprise fullback starts. Pepe has been pushed into the midfield while both Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema start. Here's the lineup.

Real Madrid Lineup (4-3-3): Casillas; Altintop, Ramos, Carvalho, Coentrao; Pepe, Alonso, Diarra; Ronaldo, Higuaín, Benzemá
