But James, who will hope to get the nod from Zidane having started just four times in the league this season, is confident Madrid will readily adapt whenever any star players are given a break.
"Regardless of how many changes are made, we are all on good form and that is down to the fact that we have got such excellent players," the Colombia international told the club's website.
