Training Session | 23/08/2019 | Alberto Navarro | Photographer: Antonio VillalbaFinal session ahead of Valladolid game
The squad completed the fifth session of the week at Real Madrid City as preparations continued ahead of the side's first competitive outing of the season at the Santiago Bernabéu, against Valladolid (Saturday, 7pm CET). Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard and Brahim continued with their recovery programmes, whilst Mariano combined indoor work with a workout on the grass.
Zinedine Zidane drafted in Juvenil A goalkeeper Juanpe for a session that got under way with a ball-based warm-up out on the grass. Next up, the Whites worked on ball circulation and pressing, before contesting training matches on reduced-sized pitches. The session was rounded off with shots on goal.
