Kaká could start against Barça if Mourinho opts to rest players

Real Madrid's decisive 3-1 win over Barcelona on Tuesday at the Camp Nou to reach the Copa del Rey final does not appear to have distracted Real Madrid fans from their true objective in the next seven days.

'Los Blancos' host Barça on Saturday in the league and have a chance to rub salt into the Catalans' wounds by beating them again, but Madrid fans have voted overwhelmingly in favor of José Mourinho picking a second string side against Jordi Roura's men, in order to keep the top players fresh for the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Tuesday.

90% of respondents to an AS survey of more than 30,000 readers said they thought Mourinho should rest a number of key players against Barcelona.

Madrid need to win in Manchester or draw by scoring at least two goals to qualify for the Quarter Finals of the Champions League, and with Barça 16 points clear of Madrid in the race for the title, it is clear to Madridistas what the priority should be.
