Real Madrid Training: August 5

Hazard trains with the team as Zidane continues preparations for Friday’s game against Manchester City

There is not a whole lot to report from today’s training session. One of the main things we were hoping to find out was the status of Eden Hazard’s health, as Arancha Rodriguez stated yesterday on Twitter that Hazard was feeling slight discomfort in his ankle. Although we don’t have any real updates, for what it’s worth, Hazard trained with the team normally today, but his ankle is not at 100%.

In today’s session, Zidane had everyone available apart from Mariano, who is obviously away from the team recovering from COVID-19. The training consisted of passing and ball control, and concluded with a game of football tennis.
