However, according to reports from Marca, he returned to training in the recovery session after the Betis draw and will now return to the squad against Thomas Tuchel’s visitors.

Despite the positive news on Kroos, skipper Sergio Ramos remains sidelined for Zidane, but Eden Hazard could play an increased role after making a late cameo at the weekend on his long awaited return from injury.
