Luka Modric and Toni Kroos rejoined the squad in Sunday’s training session, meaning that they should be available to face Paris Saint-Germain next Tuesday after spending the last two weeks injured.

Therefore, there are no players on Real Madrid’s injury report now that both Marcelo and Vallejo have also recovered from their injuries. Modric and Kroos clearly increase Madrid’s chances of keeping their current 3-1 lead on aggregate, although the whole team will need to take care of business in what will be expected to be a tough atmosphere in PSG’s Parc des Princes.

Mateo Kovacic didn’t feature in the team’s starting lineup yesterday, so he could still start in Paris if Kroos or Modric aren’t ready enough to start and play 90 minutes. If one of them needs to come off the bench, Kovacic will be the one starting in the midfield alongside Casemiro, who is an undisputed starter for coach Zinedine Zidane.
