Fede Valverde returns for Real Madrid

Fede Valverde has given Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane a timely fitness boost ahead of their clash with Sevilla CF.

The Uruguayan international has played just ten minutes of La Liga action so far this season, due to a persistent knee problem, however he has now returned to full training for Los Blancos.

He is expected to be included in the travelling squad to face former manager Julen Lopetegui's side, with Zidane battling a growing injury list, despite the season only being a month old.

Luka Modric, Isco, Marcelo and Marco Asensio will all miss the trip to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan due to injury, with skipper Sergio Ramos rated as doubtful by Zidane.

Eder Militao and Ferland Mendy are both expected to continue in place of Ramos, if he misses out, and Brazilian international Marcelo.
