In what was the first training session of the week on Wednesday, Real Madrid took to Real Madrid City to begin preparations for this weekend’s clash against Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu.
Zidane started training the team indoors, where the players completed physical exercises in the gym. Afterwards, the team took the pitch work on pressing, possession, and tactical drills before breaking into scrimmages on reduced-sized pitches. The session then ended with finishing exercises.
Zidane had his entire squad available for training today apart from three players: Marco Asensio, James Rodriguez, and Mariano Diaz. Asensio and James trained away from the group as they continued their recovery process, and Mariano trained indoors.
Carvajal has been so underrated. He’s been really good this season. Even when he slumped last year his defence was generally good.— Managing Madrid (@managingmadrid) February 9, 2020
