The Spaniards Carvajal and Nacho Fernández took one more step in their recovery from their respective injuries and worked alone on the grass on Friday at the Ciudad Deportiva de Valdebebas days before facing Valencia at the Mestalla. Their compatriot Álvaro Odriozola trained in the gym again.
After a day of rest, the Real Madrid players resumed training ahead of an always complicated visit, despite Valencia not going through their best moment.
If they get the three points, Los Blancos would go into the break in the higher positions of the table. Furthermore, if Real Sociedad don’t beat Granada on Sunday, they would be top of La Liga.
A match for which both Carvajal, injured in the inner lateral ligament of the right knee, and Nacho, with a muscle injury in the right thigh, won’t be in the squad.
The other absentee for Zidane, Odriozola, trained inside the facilities again to continue with the specific plan for the recovery of his left calf injury which was diagnosed on 3rd October.
According to the club on their website, the session started with a warm-up and prevention exercises to then give way to physical work and exercises with the ball and pressure on the opponent.
