Madridistas on the mend

Madridistas on the mend

Real Madrid have suffered bad luck on the injury front this season but newly confirmed permanent head coach Santiago Solari will be hoping to have some faces back in contention for when LaLiga returns to action.

Los Blancos have a weekend free from action and return on Saturday, November 24 (kick-off 1pm), giving Solari some much-needed time to recover some of his injured stars.

Some of those stars have continued their respective recoveries at Valdebebas this week while their teammates have been away on international duty.

Dani Carvajal and Marcelo are edging closer and closer to a return to action, featuring in full team training this week. Both are expected to be available for the trip to the Basque Country.

Jesus Vallejo has also showed signs of recovery, training separately from the group but working to be back in contention as soon as possible.

Vallejo's recovery could be timely given Nacho is set for a spell of two months on the sideline, missing the forthcoming FIFA Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi.

Los Blancos will still be without Casemiro when they return to LaLiga action but seeing their two first-choice full-backs return will be a welcome boost.
