With the title of LaLiga Santander in your pocket and with the end of Champions League of Paris on May 28 against Liverpool as his main objective, ‘Carletto’ wants to “avoid problems”, as he acknowledged in a press conference after the defeat against Atlético de Madrid 1-0, in the 18 days remaining until said meeting ; and, it would be the perfect moment to take advantage of Eden Hazard, who returned to training.
The Belgian completed his first training session with the group since the end of March, when he underwent an operation in which the osteosynthesis plate he had on his right fibula was removed to try to end the ordeal of injuries that began with the fortuitous entry of his compatriot Thomas Meunier in a Real Madrid-PSG game on November 26, 2019.
An advance in his recovery that, according to what EFE learned from club sources, has been received with joy in the team due to the confidence that the footballer transmits when he returns to touch the ball normally.
Depending on his evolution, Hazard’s goal is to be able to have minutes on the last day of the League against Betis to check that having surgery was the right decision and join Ancelotti’s list of options, although it would be from the bench, for the final against Liverpool.
Real Madrid faces Levante with several absences
Real Madrid host Levante who are playing for their permanence in LaLiga Santander and will do so even without Austrian David Alaba and Spaniard Dani Ceballos, both with groin injuries; Welshman Gareth Bale, back pain; the Brazilian Marcelo, muscular problems; and the Spanish Isco Alarcón, still convalescing from an illness that keeps him away from the team’s dynamics.
With these absences, the white team returned to training after a day off in which the Spaniards Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio trained inside the facilities of the Real Madrid Sports City in Valdebebas within the physical condition control plan established by the body technician, with the Italian Antonio Pintus at the head.
For his part, the French Karim Benzema, who did not participate in the derby due to fatigue from the Champions League semifinals, trained normally and, if there is no setback in the session prior to the match, will start against Levante.
