Bale trains alone again, but ‘can’t wait’ to return to the group

Real Madrid had their second training session of the week on Tuesday and, once again, the focus was on Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, who trained on their own.

The Welshman is fighting to get back to full fitness in time for Saturday’s Levante match and later spoke of his determination to return on social media.

“Working hard!” he wrote on Twitter.

“Can’t wait to get back on the pitch with the boys.”

Dani Carvajal was also away from the group, as he focusses on his own recovery from injury.

The main group, meanwhile, worked on possession, tactics and shooting, as well as playing some mini games.

Julen Lopetegui had 11 Castilla players working with the seniors on this occasion.
