Final training session ahead of Champions League opener


The squad have completed their final training session at Real Madrid City ahead of the opening Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk at the Alfredo Di Stéfano (Wednesday, 6:55pm CEST). The session was carried out under the strict healthcare regulations in place to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Training began with the players divided into two rondos as Zidane's team worked on possession and pressing. They then moved on to a string of intense physical drills and played a match on a reduced-size pitch, before finishing off with shots on goal. Sergio Ramos, Hazard, Carvajal, Ødegaard and Odriozola worked out using the indoor facilities.

The team will play their opening Group Stage clash against Shakhtar (Wednesday, 6:55pm CEST).
