Benzema Trains With The Group Whilst Bale Stays In The Gym

Wednesday brought some good news for Julen Lopetegui as Karim Benzema was able to train with the group again.

The Frenchman is aiming to play against Levante this Saturday though it’s still touch and go for Gareth Bale, the Welshman staying in the gym for the duration of the midweek session.

Isco worked alone and Marco Asensio surprisingly didn’t appear out on the pitches at Valdebabas either.

With the exception of Casemiro, Kroos, Fede Valverde and Courtois, who all had commitments on Tuesday, the internationals have already returned to training.

Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Ceballos and Vinicius Jr. trained normally alongside the youth players Sergio Lopez, Fran, Seoane, Fidalgo and Javi Sanchez that Lopetegui had drafted in for the session.

In more good news, Jesus Vallejo played his first minutes of the season with the Spanish U21 side on Tuesday.
