Real Madrid continue preparations for the LaLiga opener


The squad have completed their third training session of the week at Real Madrid City as they continued with preparations for this Saturday's LaLiga curtain-raiser against Celta at Balaídos (5:00pm CEST). Bale and Keylor Navas, who had been in the gym for the previous session, and Brahim, who was finishing his recovery program yesterday, all trained with the group. Mariano worked out using the indoor facilities.

Zidane called up Castilla goalkeeper Altube for a session which kicked off with a range of ball-based warm-up drills. The Whites then moved on to complete several possession and pressing exercises, and finished off with tactical and strategic elements. Asensio, Rodrygo and Mendy continued their recovery programs, the Frenchman taking to the pitch to work with the ball before returning to the gym.

Bale, Keylor Navas and Brahim were back training with the group.
