Real Madrid are likely to make wholesale changes to the starting XI for the Copa del Rey round-of-32 second-leg clash against Cultural Leonesa at the Santiago Bernabeu on 30 November.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 6pm GMT. The game is not scheduled for live broadcast in the UK.


Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to help Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijon 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on 26 November – the capital club's sixth straight win in La Liga. Zinedine Zidane's side beat Cultural Leonesa 7-1 in the first leg of the Copa del Rey round of 32 clash in October.

Keylor Navas, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have all been rested for the Copa clash, but midfielder Casemiro is likely to feature after recovering from a leg injury.

Cultural Leonesa have won six of their seven Segunda B matches since losing 7-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg. The Leon-based team are eight points clear of Racing Santander at the top of group one in Segunda B.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "We did a good job in the first leg but we have to play the return game and we have to do our jobs well again. We will try and play well and try to win the game for all the fans that will come to watch. Cultural are a good side. They are top of their group and they are playing well."

Ruben de la Barrera: "Let us go out and play the game. Let us try to compete because if you do not compete then you cannot enjoy the occasion. The idea is to go out to win at the Bernabeu. We do not want to make up the numbers for 90 minutes."
