MADRID -- Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has left goalkeeper Iker Casillas and forward Cristiano Ronaldo off his squad for his final game with the Spanish club.

Mourinho dropped Casillas even with starting goalkeeper Diego Lopez unavailable for health reasons. Mourinho has yet to start Casillas since he returned from a broken hand in early April.

Adan Garrido will likely start in Lopez's place.

Ronaldo has apparently not recovered from a back injury in time for Saturday's home game against Osasuna.

Madrid has nothing to play for and will finish the league runner-up to Barcelona, leaving it without a major trophy in Mourinho's third and final season with the club.

He is expected to return to Chelsea in the Premier League next season.
