Mourinho insists Real Madrid won't take CSKA Moscow lightly

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is confident his players won't take Champions League opponents CSKA Moscow lightly.

Madrid head into the match boasting a 10-point lead over Barcelona at the top of the Primera Division standings, and Mourinho has not taken his eye off the prize in the Champions League either.

"This match is too important to make changes to the team or reserve players," he said. "We have a solid squad and changes are made according to the characteristics of a game rather than quality.

"I've chosen the men I think will do better tomorrow against a team that has good tactics and is used to playing in the cold.

"My men have a great psychological attitude in every championship. Their mentality is very good and professional, giving serious performances in every match.

"I'm sure we'll win an important title this season by working this way, but we have to focus on one game at a time."
