Real Madrid attackers Rodrygo Goes and Jude Bellingham trained with the rest of the squad this Saturday and will be available when Los Blancos visit Cadiz this Sunday in what will be the first game after the FIFA break.

While Bellingham’s odds of featuring in this game were always high after he rejoined the group in training during the week, Rodrygo was considered ‘questionable’ with a sore knee he picked up during Brazil’s game against Argentina. However, Rodrygo has recovered from those physical problems and will be able to replace Vinicius in Madrid’s starting lineup.

Their presence will be crucial given that Real Madrid will need to survive without Vinicius for the next two months. It’s important for Ancelotti that both Bellingham and Rodrygo stay healthy and ready to go given that they will be expected to carry the burden offensively. Joselu will likely start upfront as well.
