Pepe, Benzema and Casemiro all questionable for Madrid derby against Atletico

Their status will be updated next Thursday.

Sergio Ramos trained with his Real Madrid teammates during Tuesday's session in Valdebebas, meaning that he will be fit to face Atletico de Madrid next Saturday. However, Pepe, Benzema and Casemiro are still working against the clock to see if they can recover in time for the crucial match, just like Mateo Kovacic, who picked up a small injury during his match with Croatia.

Those players will know for sure whether they are available or not this Thursday, the day when their status will be updated.

On the other hand, Toni Kroos will miss the match with the foot injury he suffered during Real's last home win against Leganés. The German midfielder was an undisputed starter for Zinedine Zidane, so he will be sorely missed in the midfield line at the Vicente Calderon.

Other than that, the rest of the squad is healthy enough to play against Simeone and his men.
