This morning saw the squad complete the second session of the week at Real Madrid City as preparations continue ahead of the side's first competitive outing of the season at the Santiago Bernabéu, which takes place on Saturday against Valladolid (7pm CET). Marco Asensio, Rodrygo, Eden Hazard, Brahim Díaz and Ferland Mendy continued with their recovery programmes, with the Frenchman again completing part of the session with the group.
Zinedine Zidane drafted in Castilla players Diego Altube, Fran García and Kubo for a session that got under way with a warm-up out on the grass. Next up, the Whites did some fitness work, completed several ball circulation and pressing drills and continued to work on tactical aspects, before rounding off with several training games on a reduced-sized pitch. Mariano, meanwhile, worked out indoors.
