Good news for Real Madrid as Cristiano Ronaldo has rejoined the squad in Friday’s training session and will be available when the team face Barcelona in a decisive El Clasico this Saturday —13:00 CET—.

Ronaldo was considered questionable for the game after missing this week’s training session but it’s now clear that he was getting as ready as possible for the crucial match against Barcelona.

Real Madrid have no injured players on their squad so coach Zinedine Zidane will have to make so important decisions. For instance, it looks like Isco will be starting behind Benzema and Ronaldo upfront, so players like Asensio and Gareth Bale would be waiting for their chance on the bench. Those two men give Madrid’s bench a lot of depth and it will be interesting to see if the team actually needs them throughout the game.

Madrid need to beat Barcelona in order to cut their current lead in the table.
