Pepe and Ramos absent from Real Madrid's training session, Isco to start

Ancelotti will not be able to start neither one of his favorite center backs.

David Ramos

Important news for Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff, as both Pepe and Sergio Ramos have missed Real Madrid's training session to prepare for Tuesday's clash against Elche. Real Madrid's two starting central defenders are recovering from small niggles that will likely keep them out of Tuesday's match at the Bernabéu against Elche. If they finally have to sit this game out, Raphäel Varane and Nacho will be Ancelotti's pair in the center of the defensive line.

In other news, Radio Marca reported this morning that midfielder Isco Alarcón will have a chance to start Tuesday's match. Isco desperately needs minutes in order to regain his best form.
