Real Madrid injuries: Bale trains alone, Modric back to normal

Real Madrid have no game at the weekend after their planned trip to the Camp Nou was postponed. They trained on Thursday at Valdebebas with their sights set on Leganés on next Wednesday with Gareth Bale back but training on his own.

Bale has missed the last two games with a calf problem he suffered playing for Wales. He is recovering and could be available to play next week. They welcome Real Betis to the Bernabéu on Saturday week and should be available for that if he doesn't make the Leganés game.

*Update 24 de octubre de 2019

Luka Modric is back at full speed and trained with the group on Wednesday. Another victim of the international break, Modric also missed the last two games but is back and ready for Leganés. The Croatian has only played four games in the league this season due to suspension and injury.

Zidane called Castilla defender, Victor Chust, and Juvenil A goalkeeper, Luis Federico López Andúgar, for the session. They did four exercises as they worked with the ball and on physical fitness. 

Nancho Fernández and Marcos Asensio remain out longer term. They return to training on Friday at 11, which will be a closed doors session.
