Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said yesterday he was happy to have a headache over whether to field Karim Benzema or Gonzalo Higuain in tonight's derby with Atletico Madrid.
The strike duo were paired together for the first time this season in the 6-2 Champions League humbling of Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday, with Benzema scoring twice and Higuain also on target.
"I'm happy to have a selection doubt between Benzema and Higuain. I have the two best strikers in the world," said Mourinho. Table-toppers Real go into the game three points clear of defending champions. Atletico are ninth.
