Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas has been named in the Spanish club's squad for Tuesday night's Champions League last-16 meeting with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Casillas has not played for Jose Mourinho's side since fracturing his left hand in their 5-0 win over Valencia in January and only returned to training on Thursday.

Despite beating rivals Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday, Los Blancos are 13 points behind the league leaders, meaning their main focus will be winning the Champions League.

Real and United drew 1-1 at the Bernabeu in the first leg after Cristiano Ronaldo cancelled out Danny Welbeck's strike.

Despite the face the English side have an away goal, Brazilian forward Kaka is confident they will reach the quarter-finals.

"Every player wants to play a match like this," he told Real Madrid's official website. "We came off the first leg in the Bernabeu with the feeling that we could have won the game and that we can equalise the draw in England and win.

"Manchester is really strong but we're going to Old Trafford with confidence.

"It's a traditionally European squad that always goes far in the competitions they play in. They also have really sold individual players like (Wayne) Rooney and (Robin) Van Persie.

"The stadium is fantastic, just like the ambience and the fans."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
