Real could have the Champions League on their mind as they have a massive game against Premier League leaders Manchester United coming up in the week, although a game against Barcelona should be able to get their full attention.
Two wins in a week against their fiercest rivals would delight fans, and the players will surely do everything they can to pile more misery on the current Spanish La Liga leaders.
Despite lying a massive 16 points behind Barcelona in the league standings and with hopes long gone of retaining their title, Kaka believes the league encounter is important to keep momentum going ahead of their crunch meeting with Manchester United next week.
"We can beat anyone anywhere and that gives us confidence," the Brazilian said, according to Real Madrid's official team website. "Tuesday's match gave us a lot of confidence, knowing that we can achieve our objectives anywhere. We are in the right sort of form to achieve it and we will see if we get even more confidence tomorrow."

Barcelona meanwhile are not in Champions League action this coming week but have the luxury of a full 10 days before they have to take on AC Milan again and try and overturn that 2-0 loss from the first leg.
The Barcelona confidence has been well knocked for the first time in many years, and it will be interesting to see how they react in this game and the match against the Italian giants coming up.
