Real Madrid management plan to give Ruud van Nistelrooy an official comeback game next week.

AS says after Van Nistelrooy's successful performance on Friday against the Castilla, Real are ready to give him minutes next Wednesday in the Champions League clash against FC Zurich.

Real coach Manuel Pellegrini will hold the Dutchman back for this weekend's Liga date with Espanyol in order for him to be ready for the Zurich match.
