Real Madrid will be back in training this Saturday after enjoying six days off because of the Christmas break. The last time Los Blancos played a match they lost 0-3 in a crucial El Clasico, so they will have to work hard during these days in order to prove that they can still compete for the title when the second half of the season kicks off next Thursday in the opening leg of the Copa del Rey tie against Numancia.

Zinedine Zidane will have a healthy roster at his disposal and it will be interesting to see what he plans to do as players like Gareth Bale could make their return to the starting lineup soon enough.

Los Blancos will visit Celta on Sunday, January 7th in what will be a tough away match for them. However, things will get even tougher this month as they will also have to take care of Valencia away from the Bernabeu. It’s time for Madrid to prove if they want this La Liga title or not.
