Real Madrid completed their penultimate training session before Saturday’s encounter with Barcelona (8:30pm CEST). Having returned from the international break, Pepe, Cristiano Ronaldo, Varane and Kroos joined up with the group. Keylor Navas, Danilo and James all completed individual exercises. The goalkeeper worked in the indoor facilities, the defender took part in the first part of the session with the group, while James did some specific running exercises and continued his work indoors.
Madrid are currently 10 points behind Barcelona but there is all to play for in terms of bragging right as Barcelona defeated them 4-0 in the first round at their own backyard
The session kicked off with a ball-based warm up which saw The Whites focus on passing and dribbling. They later split into two teams to practice possession, pressure and pressing in tight spaces. Following this, they played a game of football-tennis, completed an intense sprinting exercise and practiced one-on-one shooting.
