Real Madrid prepares to defend the leadership

first_imgAfter resting at the beginning of the week, Madrid completed on Friday the third session for Sunday’s game against Betis (9:00 pm, Movistar LaLiga). In it were all the first team players except for Asensio and Hazard, the only ones injured.The Balearic, in the final stretch of the serious injury that has been in the dry dock since last summer, jumped to the grass and exercised alone. The Belgian, meanwhile, was operated yesterday successfully in Dallas from the fissure in the right distal fibula he suffered on February 22 in the Ciutat de València. The first weeks after the intervention will be important to determine the period of Hazard leave, which will go from two to three months. At the moment, neither Madrid, nor the player, nor Belgium rule out reaching the end of the League, although it will not be easy. There is much more confidence, however, that he plays the European Championship in summer.Otherwise, Zidane arranged a training that began with a warm-up with the ball. Then there was time for exercises of possession and pressure, tactics and definition. Finally there were matches in a small field. Tomorrow, last rehearsal in Valdebebas before Seville, with 15 minutes open to the media and subsequent press conference of Zizou.last_img
