Real Madrid had their last session prior to tonight's 22:00 CET clash in Alcorcon. Manuel Pellegrini held it behind closed doors with all his men, save for the injured Pepe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain.Benzema and Van Nistelrooy, who made the squad list yesterday, also attended the mild session. The Dutch striker has overcome his month-long injury and is ready to play again.
Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Xabi Alonso and Kaka tackled the same exercises as their team-mates despite being given the evening off. Higuain jogged on his own, while Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo stayed in the gym. Lass is still in France attending to personal affairs.
