Real Madrid completed Tuesday’s training session after the return of most of their international players and coach Zinedine Zidane will be able to play James Rodriguez, Brahim and Mendy when Los Blancos take Mallorca on Saturday as all three of those players were able to train with the squad today.
However, both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale missed the session. Both of them are nursing the small injuries they picked up this Monday and might have to miss Saturday’s game in order to be ready for Real’s crucial away match against Galatasaray next week and the decisive El Clasico which will be played after that game in Turkey.
Mendy’s return to the squad is crucial now that Marcelo and Nacho are injured. The French defender has completed solid performances every time he’s been given the chance to play, but he must also stay healthy.
These next three games will be extremely important for Real Madrid, as Los Blancos need the three points in the Champions League while still needing to take care of business in La Liga.
