Real Madrid prepare for Milan final without James Rodríguez

In Real Madrid’s third training session of the week, Zidane’s men have their sights firmly set on the forthcoming Champions League final on 28 May (20:45 CET) against city neighbours Atlético Madrid.

The French coach had almost the entirety of his squad available, with the exception of James and Arbeloa, who both trained in the gym. The latter picked up a sprain in his left knee and is awaiting a full report on the injury.

In Thursday’s session, Los Blancos worked on their intensity with the ball, skipping, shooting practice and five-a-side games as they look to go into the final in prime condition.
