real Madrid, no activity on the weekend LaLiga Santanderconcentrates on the first leg against Manchester City in the Champions League. After beating Osasuna 1-3 last Wednesday, Carlo Ancelotti’s men took to the field to train without two important players for the squad: David Alaba and Casemiro.
The cases of the Austrian and the Brazilian are different. The defender has a problem in the right adductor and this prevented him from finishing the league game. In that sense, the club waits until Friday to undergo an MRI and find out in detail what will happen to him thinking about the visit to the Etihad stadium for the semifinals.
While the midfielder has not shown progress due to the injury to the back of his left leg. The player rested last weekend due to suspension against Sevilla, but at the beginning of the week he was not in the sessions. He was also not considered to be measured against Osasuna. Thus, it is difficult for the midfielder to appear against the ‘Citizens’.
Good for Madrid
For his part, Ferland Mendy trained alone on the field of play again after the muscular discomfort that he has dragged on since the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea and will be in doubt until the last moment, as recently pointed out to the EFE agency club sources.
The ones who took another step forward in their recovery were Marcelo and Gareth Bale -the latter dropped out at the last minute against Osasuna-, when they carried out the initial part of the training session together with the rest of their teammates.
Meanwhile, Eden Hazard, who completes the absentee part, combined specific work on the pitch and in the gym, thus advancing in his goal of being able to play again this season after undergoing surgery on March 29 to remove the osteosynthesis plate in the right fibula that caused him discomfort.
Good news for Ancelotti was that Dani Ceballos was able to complete training with the group, after being substituted against Osasuna in the 71st minute due to cramps after the great physical effort in his first start this season.
