This morning in Valdebebas, the Real Madrid squad completed their third and final training session ahead of tomorrow's meeting with Eibar. Zidane had 20 players to work with during the session - including Under-19s goalkeeper Moha, who has been drafted in to act as cover for Kiko Casilla in tomorrow's game with Keylor ruled out due to a groin sprain. The squad was divided into two groups for the morning workout, the first 15 minutes of which were focused on cardiovascular work and circuit training.
Once again Cristiano whacked a ball out of the practice area to get some rancor out of his system - but this time he aimed at the dug-out and was seen to gesture to the coaching staff: “I'll kick the ball over there, if I send the ball up there, they'll start saying I'm angry with the press”.
