Bad news for Real Madrid as three potential starters will miss Sunday's Derby against Atlético de Madrid. Danilo, James and Pepe could not complete today's training session with the rest of the squad and they will not be able to feature unless a miracle happens during the next few hours.
While Danilo trained by himself he is not ready to take contact on his injured foot just yet, so it seems clear that he will miss the match. On the other hand, Pepe is still bothered by his physical problems and given that Ramos and Varane are ready, it seems smart to play it safe and let him recover properly.
James might not be able to play with the Colombian national team as he injured his thigh again, according to a report from Radio Caracol. All things considered, it seems that those three players could be back with the team after the FIFA break.
