Squad begin derby preparations


The squad this morning trained at Real Madrid City as preparations got under way for the LaLiga Matchday 7 derby clash at the Wanda Metropolitano (Saturday, 9pm CET). The starters in the win over Osasuna worked to a lower intensity, whilst Marco Asensio, Ferland Mendy and Marcelo continued with their recoveries. The latter completed part of the session with the group.

Zinedine Zidane drafted in Castilla's Altube, Fidalgo, Fran García, Sergio López, De la Fuente and Javi Hernández for a workout that began with running drills out on the grass. Next up, the madridistas combined fitness and ball work, completed ball circulation and pressing drills and continued with their tactical work. The session was rounded off with games played on a reduced-sized pitch.
