Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has warned Julio Baptista he must accept being axed for tonight's clash with Real Betis.

Schuster is expected to recall Wesley Sneijder for the match, which is likely to see Baptista forced out of the squad and into the stands.

"There is no a suitable way so that all players are happy, but we are at Real Madrid and these changes must be made in respect to the opposition," said Schuster, who added: "I think the Sneijder talk is getting over the top. You're putting him at the same level as (Alfredo) Di Stefano."
