After having Wednesday off, the Real Madrid first team squad were back at Valdebebas on Thursday for training with the squad having a frank talk ahead of the session led by captain Sergio Ramos with alarm bells sounding after the 2-0 defeat to Shakhtar.

There was positive news for Zinedine Zidane after it was confirmed that Luka Jovic delivered a negative PCR test and this was able to rejoin the session with his team-mates. The return of the striker is good news with three massive challenges ahead for 'Los Blancos' as they travel to Seville on Saturday, face Borussia Mönchengladbach in a vital Champions League group game with a draw or win imperative. The following weekend Zidane's men face high flying Atlético Madrid.

Ramos return

Odriozola has also returned to full training and his return will push Lucas Vázquez further up the pitch in his natural position on the wing.

Hazard, Valverde and Carvajal are currently expected to miss this key trilogy of key games as they continue rehabilitation from their respective injuries.
