REAL MADRID STARS RETURN TO FULL TRAINING WITH LESS THAN 48 HOURS LEFT FOR THE DECIDING CLASH AGAINST PARIS SAINT GERMAIN.
With Real Madrid walking into the Parc de Princes with a two-goal advantage, few would bet against the Los Blancos given their incredible history in the Champions League. However, given their form in the La Liga, and PSG’s star-studded team things could go anyway. But with rumors and reports saying that the reigning La Liga champions could be without both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, things could have gone from bad to worse
But according to reports from Marca and even Real Madrid themselves, both the German international and the Croatian international have trained on Sunday with the rest of the team following the victory over Getafe on Saturday. While Luka Modric has been out with a thigh injury, Toni Kroos has been sidelined thanks to a knee problem, with neither of the two playing since the first leg on the 14th of February.
The German international has been a key part of Real Madrid ever since his arrival and played a big part last season as the La Liga side swept aside Barcelona to win both the La Liga and the Champions League. Kroos has started 19 out of 27 league games this season for the club and alongside Luka Modric has been Los Blancos’ creator in chief.
However, if they don’t pass a fitness test before the match, Zinedine Zidane still has the likes of Mateo Kovacic, Dani Ceballos, Marcos Llorente and even Isco Alarcon to play in his midfield three, alongside Casemiro. But neither of the three names above expect Isco, is close to the level that either Toni Kroos and Luka Modric play at, and could potentially struggle to win the midfield battle against Adrien Rabiot, Marco Verratti, and Javier Pastore.
If Real Madrid does get both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric back in-time for the second leg against PSG, it would be a massive boost to both their hopes of another Champions League trophy and a potential win against PSG. However, if they don’t then they need their replacements to play beyond brilliantly against a good PSG team, to help them with a win.
