Real Madrid continues preparations for a clash against Valladolid
Los Blancos will play against Valladolid. It will be an away game for Real Madrid, so Zidane’s team has to be prepared for everything.
Part of the squad is healthy
Real Madrid has many injured players. Eden Hazard, Odriozola, Valverde, Marcelo, Isco, Militao, Ramos and Carvajal. That’s a big list of players and keep in mind that most of them play in the starting line-up. In absence of Sergio Ramos, Los Blancos defense is trying their best to defend in every game.
At the same time, there is good news for Los Blancos. Lucas Vazquez returned from the injury. He played the game against Valencia and demonstrated his skills. It was visible that Lucas could be back in best shape again. Lucas replaced Dani Carvajal in the match against Valencia and played for around 60 minutes. Vazquez was running on the right wing and his main target was not only defense but also attacking.
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos feel well. They are healthy, so Los Blancos midfield is going strong. Marca wrote that Zidane will play with the same trident in the midfield – Modric, Kroos and Casemiro. These players are inevitable for big matches. Game against Valladolid will be important for Los Blancos as Atletico lost points.
Eden Hazard is training on the pitch
Unlike Ramos and Carvajal, Eden Hazard is already training on the pitch. He is doing a good job on the pitch. Medical team gave him permission to touch the ball on Thursday night. Fitness coach believes that Eden has made good progress. Real Madrid management was waiting for Eden’s return in March. Belgian is eager to play and demonstrate his skills, so return is happening earlier than expected. Spanish journalists noted that Hazard lost 4 KG, so he is very light. Real Madrid’s coaching team wants to have Hazard ready for a clash against Atletico Madrid.
