Barcelona vs Real Madrid: Copa Del Rey - Preview
Barcelona: Barcelona quartet Carles Puyol, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fabregas and Xavi are all in line to return to the starting lineup for Tuesday`s clash against Real Madrid after being rested over the weekend.

Defender Adriano is a doubt with a hamstring problem, but assistant coach Jordi Roura has an otherwise clean bill of health.

Madrid welcomes back Xabi Alonso (groin), Karim Benzema (knee) and Raphael Varane (muscle strain) from injury. Sergio Ramos, Fabio Coentrao and Angel Di Maria also return after missing the first leg through suspension, while Kaka is pushing for a start after his match-winning contribution against Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday.
