Madrid plays Sporting Gijon at home this weekend before a Copa Del Rey Round of 32 match against Cultural Leonesa on Nov. 30.

The Merengues should be able to navigate those just fine, but will need all hands on deck for the next week’s match at Barcelona and the following week’s visit from Borussia Dortmund.
