Real Madrid will start 2023 with a encounter with Cacereno in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night away from home. Before the game, Los Blancos continued their preparations when holding the first training session of the new year in Valdebebas earlier today.
According to official updates from the club, up to 3 Real Madrid stars are not participating in the latest training sessions. The three players who are not eligible to play against Cacereno are Thibaut Courtois, Dani Carvajal and Mariano Diaz..
According to an update from Merengues, both Courtois and Carvajal have to work in the gym. The duo are unlikely to play against Cacereno, regardless of their fitness, as Ancelotti is expected to take the opportunity to kick the trophy to rotate the squad.
Meanwhile, Diaz was unable to train with the team after he had just recovered from an ankle injury. It remains to be seen whether he will recover in time for the King’s Cup match.
Finally, information about Eder Militao. The Brazilian defender, who missed the last match, has returned to training.
