It's been a while since James Rodríguez got injured but the Colombian player is almost ready to make his return to Real Madrid's lineup after managing to work on the pitch for the first time yesterday. However, his injury is very tricky and he might not be recovered this weekend yet.

James is trying to get ready as soon as possible to be 100% fit for El Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. It looks like he could make it, but fans should remember that he had a set back when he was almost ready to play in the Derby against Atlético as well.

Either way, James is a crucial player for Real Madrid and Rafa Benítez will surely try to have him at his disposal for the next Clásico. Isco is not in great form so James doesn't have a quality replacement as of now. He must be careful with his recovery.
