Good news for Zinedine Zidane and his coaching staff as Theo Hernandez, Marcelo and Benzema completed Thursday’s training session with the rest of the squad who aren’t on national duty.

It definitely seems that these three players will be available when Real Madrid visit Getafe on Saturday October 14th, meaning that Nacho will almost certainly be deployed on the right side of the defensive line because of Carvajal’s illness.

Right now, Kovacic, Carvajal and Bale are the only injured players on Real Madrid’s roster, although Zidane will keep his fingers crossed knowing that some players could also pick up injuries during this FIFA break.

It will be important for Madrid to recover Karim Benzema as the team has not been performing consistently without the French attacker. That will allow Cristiano Ronaldo to play on the left wing, a position where right now he’s much more comfortable than leading the offensive line through the center of the field.
