Strikers miss Madrid workout

Both Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema were absent from Real Madrid’s Friday morning training session.

The duo are seen as a doubt to make Los Blancos’ weekend match at home to Real Valladolid after not training with the rest of the main group at today’s workout.

Higuain is reported as struggling with a back complaint, but Benzema’s reason for not making this morning is not yet reported.

The forwards were joined on the sidelines by Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Alvaro Arbeloa, who are all respectively injured.
