Everything seems positive at Real Madrid in the last days. The team beat Atlético Madrid in the derby and opened the gap until six points with Barcelona. Besides, Sergio Ramos found the net in the last minute of El Clásico securing a point at Camp Nou. Now Real Madrid have to face Borussia Dortmund in the last game of the Champions League group with the obligation of winning to lead their group.
The squad is optimistic although is going to be a tough game. Los Blancos have to face the German squad, then Deportivo La Coruña in La Liga and the FIFA World Cup to finish the year with the possibility of adding another trophy to the museum. And Zinedine Zidane will have the full squad available for these games except Gareth Bale, recently operated in London in his ankle.
The last players to join the rest of the squad were Álvaro Morata and Toni Kroos. Both were expected to come back one or two weeks later but they’ve shorten the recovery period and they might have some opportunities to play some minutes against Borussia Dortmund.
Toni Kroos had a fracture in his toe and he’s been out of the pitches since the game against Leganés in the 6th of November, so he’s missed the last month of competition. The German is one of the most important players of the squad as he had played every game since his injury.
Álvaro Morata also got injured in November when he played with Spain at Wembley against England. He had a problem in his knee, so he couldn’t appear in the last month of competition. Due to the low level shown by Benzema, it’s very important to recover Álvaro Morata.
Therefore, Zinedine Zidane has now the full squad available with the exception of Gareth Bale, who will be out until March. Casemiro, Kroos or Morata can now play the last four games of the year and even Coentrao or Danilo have recovered from their muscular problems.
