Two weeks without a game
Real Madrid were due to play in Vigo this evening but seeing as the match was cancelled due to the bad weather up on the north west coast, Zinedine Zidane organized a mini-practice match this morning. The league leaders will have gone two weeks without an official game and the coach is keen to ensure that his players are kept busy.
Zidane has all of his availble players, except for Luka Modric, who exercised inside the gym in Valdebebas while Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale both continued with their respective recovery programmes.
James and Pepe both looked particularly active in the practice match; Zidane also called on several Castilla players who were not involved in yesterday's 1-1 draw Leioa.
