José Mourinho decided to end the euphoria of winning the title of the Spanish Cup, pulled the Champions League tie against Barcelona, which "I do not want to know anything" and asked to focus on the game this Saturday (6:00 pm) against Valencia, where the team comes "with limitations"

"I do not want to know anything about the game next Wednesday. We have to play at the Mestalla Stadium and keep always serious in the League against a very difficult and serious rival. We have to think of this game because we come with limitations, injuries and fatigue. On Sunday morning we will recover and in the afternoon we will spend the Easter with the family. On Monday we will think about Wednesday", said Real Madrid coach.

José Mourinho has called up 20 players for the match. Canales, Granero, Lass, Pedro Leon and the Castilla's players Juanfran and Nacho Fernandez are the news in the list from the last league match played at the Bernabeu Stadium. Gago, Khedira, Di Maria, Adebayor (injury) Arbeloa, (suspension) and Sergio Ramos (technical decision) stay out .

In this way, Juanfran could be a starter in the right side as Jose Mourinho will be without Arbeloa, who received his fifth yellow card, in the League match against Barcelona, and has decided to rest Sergio Ramos. The other problem is in the middle of the field after the Sami Khedira's injury. If Mourinho keeps the three players system, that would make sense after seeing the excellent results it has offered in the two games against Barcelona, Lass Diarra and Esteban Granero will battle for the third place. The Frenchman has always enjoyed the patronage of the coach, but his physical condition is not the best after the problems he has had in the left hip. The Spanish, meanwhile, has a good presence on the team and has played at a high level both in San Mames as White Hart Lane.

Valencia are currently third in the table and want to lock up a berth in next season's Champions League as quickly as possible. Unai Emery's men are riding a three-game winning streak with twelve goals scored and only two conceded. Eighteen players will suit up for Valencia team, who are without the injured Bruno Saltor and Tino Costa.

Real Madrid is always welcomed with hate on the Mediterranean city, increased exponentially since the signing of Mijatovic in 1996. It remains far from that, seems more typical of the black and white television era when winning the 'rich' meant a successful season for Valencia.
