The Frenchman rejoined the rest of his teammates after five days off. Hazard trained with the rest of the group. Marcelo, Bale and Alba rush to be against Betis.

The situation

A few minutes after 9 in the morning, Karim Benzema entered the Valdebebas facilities. The French thus put an end to a special permit that Carlo Ancelotti granted him last week for five days of vacation, in order for him to rest with a view to the final week of Real Madrid.

The Belgian had good news yesterday when he was summoned by Roberto Martínez for the four games of the League of Nations next June. Marcelo, Alaba and Bale went to exercise (all three did specific work) and to be checked by the club’s physios. The captain will be able to get to the Betis game which, if things don’t change, will be his last game at the Bernabéu as a player for the first white team. The Austrian was checked after his good feelings in Wednesday’s training, and everything indicates that he may be available for the match against Verdiblanca. The case of the Welshman, for his part, is that for the moment he is doubtful to play against Betis, but he is not ruled out. On Thursday, in the last session, he will get rid of doubts…
