Today marked the last training session before Real Madrid take the field against Valencia late tomorrow night. This update from Real Madrid City proceeds two others that we already covered: Euan McTear had quotes from Zinedine Zidane’s press conference (where Zizou spoke about Eden Hazard and Casemiro’s health after both being tested for COVID-19, Isco’s playing time, and more); while Lucas Navarrete posted the matchday squad here.
Today’s training began with individual warm-up exercises before moving into technical drills: dribbling and shooting (on small goals, and then eventually into regular-sized goals). Fitness exercises were sprinkled in between.
No change from yesterday with regards to the wing-backs. Nacho Fernandez and Dani Carvajal worked out on the grass on their own; while Alvaro Odriozola also trained outside, separately from everyone.
Kick-off tomorrow against Valencia is at the Mestalla, at 9pm CET. We’ll have everything covered here, both pre and post-game, tomorrow.
