A miraculous sight in Valdebebas!

Rafa Benítez was able to work with his whole roster for the first time this season. Every single player recovered from their injuries and completed today's training session with their teammates, even Marcelo or Keylor Navas, who picked up injuries only a few weeks ago.

This is obviously good news for Benítez and for Real Madrid fans, although big players will have to sit on the bench this Saturday. Isco, Jesé or Casemiro seem to be the most likely ones to miss the Starting XI, but Benítez could also surprise Luis Enrique by leaving a quality player like James or Bale on the bench in order to shake things up during the second half if needed.

Either way, Marcelo, Navas and Benzema are crucial players and were performing really well before getting injured, so their recovery seems to be very important to increase Real's chances of securing a win this Saturday.
