The manager was tested positive for COVID-19 and Ramos was pulled out as a result of an injury he sustained in the build up to the Spanish Super Cup clash against the eventual winner Athletic Bilbao.

Ramos and Raphael Varane were not available for the clash against Alcoyano and the team was not the same with the defensive pair.

Real Madrid suffered a 2-1 defeat in the extra time and crash out of the competition once again despite the squad not heavily rotated.

Nacho Fernandez is on isolation having tested positive for coronavirus, Rodrygo Goes has not recovered from his injury and Martin Odegaard is looking to seal deal to Arsenal and he would not be counted upon.

Dani Carvajal took part in the session, but there is a reluctance to rush him back to action.
The team manager could turn to youth players Victor Chust and Antonio Blanco to cover the side’s absences at Alaves on Saturday at the Mendizorroza.
