The winger did not train this Wednesday and his contest in the match against Villarreal is not certain; Ancelotti will not take risks. Courtois worked normally.


The big return against Villarreal

The return to training for Real Madrid after its debut with a 1-0 win in the Copa del Rey against Cacereno , brought back Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to the group dynamics, and the still absence of Dani Carvajal, on the first day in which Carlo Ancelotti’s team began to prepare for Saturday’s league visit to Villarreal. It was a divided group session with recovery work for the players who started in Caceres on Tuesday night and more intense work for those who played less or the large group of regular players who did not even travel. In this way, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema or Vinicius Junior, exercised intensely in an afternoon session, after resting in the Copa del Rey.


Who will play against Villarreal

The novelty at Real Madrid City was Courtois, once he had overcome the slight muscular discomfort that led to his break in the Copa del Rey after missing two training sessions. The Belgian trained normally along with the other goalkeepers and will be able to return against Villarreal. Meanwhile, Carvajal is still out of the group for the moment and together with Mariano Díaz, who suffered a sprain, they exercised inside the facilities of the sports city. Carlo Ancelotti was optimistic about the right-back’s participation next Saturday in LaLiga and it is expected that he will test himself with the group in the next training sessions.
