The players who were out on international duty are almost all back now. Luka Jovic, Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, Dani Carvajal, Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon are training with the team (although Reguilon and Gareth Bale are working out indoors). Eden Hazard, Raphael Varane, and Ferland Mendy have not returned yet as they all played in yesterday’s final round of UEFA Nations League matches for this international break.
Joining Bale and Reguilon indoors were Marco Asensio and Mariano Diaz.
Today’s session — the third of the week — was intense, and focused mostly on physical drils.
As previously noted, today Real Madrid were supposed to play a friendly behind closed doors against Rayo Vallecano. The match was cancelled because one Rayo player had not gotten the results of his COVID-19 test back yet, and the two clubs decided there was too much risk for an inconsequential match to go ahead.
