Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has rejoined the squad in training after testing negative for Covid-19. The French center-back will be available when Los Blancos visit Cadiz this Tuesday, which is great news considering the amount of injuries Madrid have had in recent weeks.

Casemiro and Nacho will also be available after missing the match against Getafe due to a suspension. Both of them will be expected to start and that’s great news for Madrid’s midfield, who struggled immensely on Sunday.

All things considered, coach Zinedine Zidane will be able to rely on a more reliable lineup than the one he played against Getafe, where he started Isco and Modric in the midfield and Vinicius, Rodrygo, Asensio and Mariano upfront.

It will be interesting to see if Benzema and Kroos have recovered from their niggles and are fresh and ready enough to start and face Cadiz, which would give Madrid a huge boost after what was a mediocre match last Sunday.
