RM make up for Celta postponement

Real Madrid played a friendly match between a mix of their first-team squad and youth players after Sunday’s fixture at Celta Vigo was postponed.

Cristiano Ronaldo – who was celebrating his 32nd birthday – was reportedly on the side who ran out 6-1 victors along with stars such as Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos, against a side featuring Isco, Karim Benzema and Pepe.

The match took place during Sunday afternoon although both James Rodriguez and Luks Modric sat it out due to fitness concerns.

"The squad are back to training at Real Madrid City after the postponement of the game at Balaidos," read a club statement

"Los Blancos completed a session with an intense warm-up, possession drills and a two-part game on pitch 3. Zidane called on the Castilla players Lin [Liangming], [Jaime] Seoane, [Cristian] Cedres, [Alvaro] Tejero and Nikos [Vergos].

"Modric and James trained using the indoor facilities, while [Gareth] Bale and [Dani] Carvajal continued with their respective recovery processes."
