Third session of week

The squad trained at Real Madrid City as the players completed the third session of the week with the absences of the 12 madridistas currently away on international duty. Ferland Mendy, Nacho, Toni Kroos and Marco Asensio continued with their recovery programmes, with the former completing some ball work alone on the grass.

Zinedine Zidane drafted in Castilla's Fran García, Javi Hernández and Chust and Juvenil A players Luis, Toni Fuidias and Pablo for a session that got under way with a workout in the gym. Next up, the Whites completed several ball circulation and pressing drills out on the grass, before working on finishing and rounding things off with several matches on a reduced-sized pitch. James, meanwhile, worked out indoors.

Mendy completed ball work alone out on the grass.
