Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain could push Karim Benzema to the bench for tomorrow's clash with Espanyol.

Higuain has impressed coach Manuel Pellegrini during international week, particularly with his performance last Friday against the Castilla.

The Real boss is now planning to start the match against Espanyol with Higuain in attack - with either Benzema or skipper Raul to partner him.

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos enjoyed a full training session yesterday and will meet with Pellegrini this morning to discuss the prospect of him being included in the squad.
