Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the Real Madrid squad following an injury lay off but his attacking partner, Karim Benzema is still out with a thigh injury
Cristiano Ronaldo missed the Audi Cup tournament with a back injury and was set to return at the start of the season but the Portuguese captain has recovered earlier than expected and is set to feature for Rafa Benitez’s side in the Santiago Beanabeu Trophy match against Galatasary. Real Madrid would however be without Rafael Varane who is out with muscular issues. Real Madrid would still be buoyed by the presence of Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos who just penned down a new deal with the club.
Real would be hoping to enjoy a successful season under new manager,Rafa Benitez after a trophy-less season last time out.
