Xabi Alonso And Karim Benzema Rejoin The Squad

Carlos Alvarez

Xabi Alonso and Karim Benzema took part on Real Madrid's training session this Sunday. Both of them were out of the squad for two weeks, but they are currently regaining form and getting ready to play against Barcelona and Manchester United.

Real Madrid's potential starters against Manchester United and FC Barcelona took two weeks out of the team to recover from their small injuries. Now, both of them are set to start Real Madrid's biggest games of the season. Los blancos could have no chance of winning a cup this season if they don't manage to recover from the 1-1 draws at the Bernabéu in the Copa del Rey and Champions League tie.

Given Real Madrid's recent struggles, Mourinho could be anxious to put Benzema and Alonso back in the lineup for those crucial matches.
