Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid squad put through anti-doping test by UEFA

La Liga giants Real Madrid’s first-team squad was this morning put through an anti-doping test by European football’s governing body, UEFA.

That’s according to journalist Guillermo Rai of The Athletic, who, citing sources at the club, confirmed as much a short time ago.

The tests in question took place at Los Blancos’ Valdebebas training base, with little further information regarding the situation having been forthcoming.

They are likely to have been routine, though, with little cause for concern amongst the Real faithful.

Turning attentions back towards the pitch, Ancelotti’s troops will mark their return to action this coming Saturday.

Afforded just shy of a full week of rest owing to the club’s elimination from the Copa del Rey, the capital giants are set to make the trip to the Estadio Gran Canaria, for a La Liga meeting with Las Palmas.

Real currently sit 2nd in Spain’s top-flight, a point adrift of table-topping Girona whilst boasting a game in hand.
