Kroos and Bale to stay in Madrid with Benzema a doubt

Karim Benzema trained for the second consecutive day with the Real Madrid squad and there is still a possibility the French striker can play some role in Tuesday's Uefa Super Cup against Sevilla.

The club's medical team will make a last minute decision on his fitness ahead of the game at the Lerkendal Stadion in Trondheim.


“He hasn't been training with the rest of the squad so we'll have to see when Tuesday comes around" commented Zidane aware of the club policy of not risking players that are not completely injury free.

Kroos y Bale. 

Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos are in a different position. Both players completed their second complete training session upon their return from holiday but the French coach has decided that neither international player will travel to Norway when the squad depart later this afternoon (Monday) at 13.30 (CET).

Keylor Navas meanwhile continues his particular rehabilitation process so Casilla will be the goalkeeper for the Super Cup clash.
