Jose Mourinho is expected to rotate and rest his squad as much as possible ahead of Madrid Champions League match on Wednesday. This has been a fairly common occurrence of late with the like of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Özil often starting on the bench but ending up in the match when Madrid doesn't play well.
Real Zaragoza have problems of a different sort as they're barely ahead of Mallorca on the positive side of the relegation zone. They could certainly use a result of any kind to help keep their nose in front but expecting them to do it against even a potentially weakened Madrid side might be too much to ask.
