Good News For Real Madrid

After nearly half a year without playing, Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso is expected back in action this week.

The 31-year-old former Liverpool star had been suffering from a groin injury at the beginning of the season, and just when he looked set to make his comeback, he broke his foot.

He reportedly still fears a relapse of his groin injury, suggesting that he may have developed some kind of chronic malady.

However, Real issued a good news statement in the aftermath of their Clasico defeat, suggesting that Alonso is now ready to return.

They face Sevilla at the Bernabeu in a La Liga clash on Wednesday night, and Alonso is slated to make an appearance.

“Xabi Alonso continues to progress on his way back to playing for the team,” the statement said.

“The Whites midfielder, who has recently taken part in full training with his teammates, was at Real Madrid City on the rest day to continue with his rehabilitation.

“Also training under the orders of Ancelotti were Diego Lopez, Tomas Mejias, [Alvaro] Arbeloa, Nacho [Fernandez], Isco, Casemiro, [Alvaro] Morata and Jese [Rodriguez].”

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti is likely to field a mix and match line-up with one eye on their Champions League clash against Juventus next week.

However, Gareth Bale is expected to start the match against Sevilla in the right-wing position, having failed to trouble Barcelona as a travelling centre-forward in El Clasico.
