Dani Carvajal recovers from injury and completes training with the squad

The right back appears to be ready to face Deportivo this next Saturday.

Good news for Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff. Dani Carvajal has recovered from the muscle injury he picked up during the FIFA break and was able to complete Real Madrid's training session with the rest of the squad. As usual after a mid-week match, Real Madrid's starters went through a recovery session inside Valdebebas' facilities, while the rest of the squad did some work behind closed doors.

If everything goes according to plan, Dani Carvajal should be able to start Saturday's Liga BBVA game against Deportivo La Coruña. It should be noted that Ancelotti has tested both Arbeloa and Nacho Fernández in Carvajal's place, so both defenders could be ready as well if the Italian coach prefers to play it safe and give Carvajal more sessions to get back to the squad's rhythm and physicality.
