Preview: Olimpic de Xativa vs. Real Madrid

Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday night's Copa del Rey fourth-round clash between Segunda B Division side Olimpic de Xativa and La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Real Madrid travel to Valencia on Saturday evening to face Segunda B side Olimpic de Xativa in the fourth round of the Copa del Rey.

Carlo Ancelotti is preparing Los Blancos for four games in the space of 12 days, which starts and ends with the two domestic cup matches against the third tier team.

Therefore, the Italian is expected to rest many of his first-team regulars, which gives some of the fringe players a chance to play.

Real have won their last five games and trail Barcelona and Atletico Madrid by just three points after 15 games. They face Copenhagen in their final Champions League match on Tuesday before returning to league action against Osasuna.
