Real Madrid have begun preparations for the game against Villarreal at 4.15pm CET on Saturday.
In training were most of the team that drew 2-2 with Numancia on Wednesday and the usual starters like Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, who did not participate in the game. Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema continue their respective recoveries from injuries.
Madrid are looking to bounce back after being beaten 3-0 by Barcelona and drawing 2-2 with Celta Vigo in their previous matches. The 2-2 draw with Numancia was not an impressive result either, even as they qualified for the Copa del Rey quarter finals.
Madrid are 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, down in fourth place. Rumours are circling that Madrid are speaking to Germany coach Joaquim Low about replacing Zidane.
