Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster can't rule out axing skipper Raul in favour of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain for Sunday's match at Racing Santander.

Higuain has been one of Real's best performers this season and Schuster admitted: "Higuain is doing very well. I'd rather have this problem than not.

"Higuain is fit and confident. He's making my team selection very difficult."
