Real Madrid rests Raul for key King´s Cup match

15 January 2008 20:13

MADRID (AFP) - Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has decided to rest the club's iconic captain Raul for the club's do-or-die King's Cup match at home against Real Mallorca on Wednesday.

Schuster left the 30-year-old out of his 16-man line-up for the match which comes just four days before Real face cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league.

Raul has scored eight goals for Real in La Liga this season, making him the club's top scorer after its Dutch striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy, who has racked up 11 goals.

He has started for Real in 18 of the 19 league matches the club has played this year.

Schuster also left out the club's in-form regular goalkeeper Iker Casillas from the squad that will face Mallorca.

Mallorca beat Real 2-1 in the first leg of the last 16 tie.

Defending league champions Real won their last King's Cup title in 1993.
