In Real Madrid’s third session of the week on Thursday, almost all the remaining internationals were back for Carlo Ancelotti, including Luka Modric, David Alaba, Antonio Rüdiger and Rodrygo, who were all on international duty on Tuesday. AS report that Fede Valverde was the only absentee. The Uruguayan will return on Friday, and will only have two training sessions with his team-mates before travelling to Cádiz this weekend.
Rodrygo worked alone in the gym on his recovery after playing for Brazil against Argentina. Jude Bellingham and Dani Ceballos both completed a training session with the rest of the squad for the first time since their respective injuries and are in line to be included in the matchday squad for Sunday. The England international and the team’s top scorer completed the session, the first time he has done so this week and he is expected to be back on the pitch at the Nuevo Mirandilla after missing the games against SC Braga and Valencia.
Lunin to start
Kepa, who picked up an injury in training before the Champions League game against Braga, spent some time working on his own and Andriy Lunin is expected to be in goal for Los Blancos both in Cádiz and in Wednesday’s Champions League game against Napoli.
