Good news in the first preparatory training for the Clásico. Both Eden Hazard (30 years old) and Dani Carvajal (29 years old) trained at the same pace as the rest of their teammates, getting to play a mini-game without noticing any discomfort. Despite this, the two will be testing each other with views in the two remaining sessions before traveling to Barcelona to discuss their availability to be at the meeting on Sunday (4:15 pm) … but both look capable and willing to play against Barça.
Carvajal is the one who has been injured the longest. The Madrid winger was injured in the match that Madrid defeated Valencia at the Mestalla on matchday five, practically a month ago (September 19). He suffered discomfort in the right calf that made him request the change in the 26th minute of the match. He was replaced by Lucas Vázquez. Until then, Leganés had in five games (four in the League and the first in the Champions League). The one from Leganés returned gradually since last week and He has been training these days despite the fact that the squad was in Kiev to face Shakhtar. In the first session he did part of the training with the group, but he is ready.
Eden Hazard was injured in a meeting with Belgium. The Belgian had to be substituted in the 75th minute of the semi-finals between France and the Red Devils: he stopped running on a counterattack, which set off alarms for both the Belgian national team and Real Madrid. After some first explorations it was determined to have a small overload. He returned to Madrid, and got down to work with the idea of reaching Clásico: He was working individually, running with shoes and lightly in Valdebebas. This week He has been loading himself with work together with the physios of the club and with that of the Belgian team, Lieve Maesschalck.
What’s more, Benzema stayed working in the gym along with Bale and Ceballos. The French he suffered a heavy stomp in the game against Shakhtar, but there is nothing serious about him. SHe will be in the game together with Vinicius at the tip of the white attack. The other hits, Isco and Jovic, trained alone on the pitch.
