Higuain set for return

Gonzalo Higuain is set to return to the Real Madrid side as he has been included in the squad to face Sporting Gijon this weekend.

The Argentine has been missing for much of the season with a slipped disc, and Real are currently five points off Barcelona.

Jose Mourinho, the Real coach, said: “There may be up to 15 matches left to play this season and having him is important.”
