Real Madrid’s Rodrygo and Fede Valverde have trained on the pitch today and should be ready to play right after the current FIFA break. They still have to rehab for a few days before they can rejoin the squad in training, but if they avoid any kind of set back they will be available when Los Blancos face Granada on November 21st.

Valverde injured his knee during the past El Clasico and was forced to leave the game even though he had come off the bench. His presence in the midfield will be crucial over the next few weeks as coach Carlo Ancelotti will have to start making some rotations before the Christmas break.

On the other hand, Rodrygo suffered a muscle injury against Elche and has been the starter on Real Madrid’s right wing for the last few months, so he should be back at that spot as soon as he’s ready to play 90 minutes.
