Real Madrid are currently completing the last training session ahead of Saturday’s match against Eibar in La Liga and both Toni Kroos and Eden Hazard were able to rejoin the squad, meaning that even if they take a cautious approach and miss the game, they should be ready to face Liverpool next Tuesday.

Kroos’ chances of featuring in the starting lineup then are much higher than Hazard’s though. The Belgian attacker could come off the bench but his recent issues with injuries suggests that coach Zinedine Zidane should keep Hazard on the bench until he’s able to improve his conditioning and be fully recovered.

Zidane will likely use the match against Eibar to make sure that everyone is in good form to face Liverpool, given that Madrid’s chances of competing for the Liga title are very slim at the moment.

Valverde, Ramos and Carvajal are still out and while some reports suggested that the Spanish right-back could make it in time for the first leg, it seems unlikely right now.
