UPDATED: Navas worked by himself after a few minutes and won’t be available.
Keylor Navas and Luka Modric completed at least the first portion of Friday’s training session with the rest of the squad and might be ready to face Atletico de Madrid in the Madrid Derby this Saturday —20:45 CET— even though they were questionable, especially Navas.
While Modric will almost certainly be in Real’s starting lineup, Navas’ status isn’t that clear and coach Zinedine Zidane will explain whether he’s available or not in the pre-match press conference. He’s missed the last few weeks with a muscle injury and Madrid will not want to rush him back just yet if he isn’t totally ready to go.
Real Madrid need to beat their neighbors as Barcelona are already eight points ahead of Los Blancos after a very mediocre start to their La Liga season. Dani Carvajal’s return to the team after recovering from his pericarditis should definitely help Real Madrid in this intense Madrid Derby.
