Madrid, May 4 (IANS) Real Madrid’s Isco Alarcon, Raphael Varane and Dani Carvajal on Friday trained individually on the sidelines of the team’s group session, two days before the La Liga football match against Barcelona at the Camp Nou Stadium.
While the three players could not train under their French coach Zinedine Zidane, the rest of the squad joined the practice in preparation for the Clasico, scheduled for Sunday, reports Efe.
Spaniard Isco was the only one of the three to get on the pitch, though only to run, not to practice.
He was unable to play against Leganes or Bayern Munich due to a blow to the shoulder, so Zidane will probably not risk calling him up against Barcelona.
Isco’s compatriot Carvajal, likely out until mid-May, continued his rehab work inside the club facilities after suffering a more serious muscle injury.
Frenchman Varane, with muscle pains in his right leg, also exercised off the pitch and is unlikely to play against Barca.
The group training session was joined by Spanish goalkeeper Dario Ramos of Real Madrid’s Youth Team, Juvenil A.
