Luka Modric, 35, will miss Real Madrid’s second league game this season. The Croatian suffers a small injury to the adductor that prevents him from being with the rest of his teammates this Sunday at the Ciutat de Valencia against Levante at 22:00 (Movistar LaLiga).
In this morning’s training session, the Madrid midfielder trained inside the facilities together with Kroos, Ceballos and Mariano. Modric’s injury opens a hole in the starting eleven Isco, who has had a good preseason, but was barely able to play two minutes in the Madrid victory against Alavés (1-4). This injury also provides an opportunity for castillistas like Arribas. The young white player can complete Ancelotti’s squad list. List that the Italian coach will announce tomorrow.
Fourth session of the week
Real Madrid began their training at 10:00 am at Real Madrid City to face the game against Levante. The fourth training session of the week has been marked, in addition to Modric, by the good condition of Carvajal, who can return to a call four months later. His last game was the first leg of the Champions semi-finals against Chelsea. The one from Leganés played 77 minutes in the 1-1 draw against the London team.
Training has started with the white players doing warm-up exercises and practicing possession and pressure. Afterwards, they have completed a tactical work session to end the usual small game. Marcelo and Mendy continue little by little with their respective recoveries and they have worked alone on the lawn.
