Sami Khedira and Angel di Maria have recently returned to full fitness, but Jose Mourinho apparently doesn't trust them to go 90 minutes just yet. Esteban Granero will make a start in the center of midfield next to Xabi Alonso, while both Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain will start along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Özil. Benzema is expected to play out wide, while Higuain should play center forward.
