Real's Raul fit to face Arsenal

Real Madrid striker Raul is fit again after a knee injury and could face Arsenal in the Champions League.

Raul was named in the Real squad for the first time in three months ahead of Saturday's league match against Alaves.

The 28-year-old suffered a partial tear of the cruciate ligament and damaged the cartilage in his left knee when he miscued a shot on 19 November.

Real Madrid entertain Arsenal in the first leg of their last 16 tie on Tuesday, 21 February.

Doctors at the Spanish club followed a conservative programme of treatment for Raul's injury rather than opt for an operation in the hope the player would make a quicker recovery.

Raul is expected to skipper Spain at the World Cup in Germany.
