Real Madrid begin preparations for Betis clash

The squad trained at Real Madrid City as they began preparations for Sunday's LaLiga meeting with Betis at the Benito Villamarín (8:45pm CET). Meanwhile, Toni Kroos, Marco Asensio, Marcos Llorente, Gareth Bale, Thibaut Courtois and Mariano continued with their respective programme programmes. The latter completed part of the session with the rest of the group, whilst Vinicius Jr. missed out on training through flu.

Santiago Solari included Real Madrid Castilla's Cristo in the session, which got under way with some fitness work out on the grass. The players then worked on possession and pressing, completed tactical work and contested a match on a reduced-sized pitch, before rounding the workout off with some finishing drills.
