Cristiano, Bale, Cheryshev, Legia: Real Madrid round-up
Match-day 5 in LaLiga starts tonight with Real Madrid in action tomorrow at home to Villarreal. The BBC should be back to full frequency tomorrow at the Bernabeu.
Return of BBC
With Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo back training with the rest of the Madrid squad it's anticipated that French coach Zinedine Zidane will elect his tried and trusted front line trio tomorrow when Madrid face Villarreal at the Bernabeu (kick-off 20:00 CET).
Last training session pre-Villarreal
Real Madrid are scheduled to carry out their last training session this morning as they prepare for the LaLiga clash at the Bernabeu tomorrow. Zinedine Zidane will then host his traditional pre-match press conference.
Cheryshev to face Madrid
Denis Cheryshev will play against Real Madrid tomorrow at the Bernabeu for the first time in his professional carrear. When on loan at Sevilla and previously at Villarreal a clause in his contract prohibited the Russian international from facing his "parent" club.
Athletic fixture confirmed
LaLiga yesterday confirmed the kick-off times for matchday 9 of the 2016/17 season. Real Madrid will face Basque side Altheltic Club at 20:45 CET on Sunday October 23.
Hasi out at Legia
A poor start to the domestic Polish campaign saw Legia Warsaw sack their coach Besnik Hasi yesterday. The club from the Polish capital languish 14th in the Ekstraklasa and suffered a 0-6 reverse to Dortmund in the opening game in the Champions League. Madrid welcome Legia on October 18.
