The makeshift Real Madrid side that beat Real Sociedad is set to receive some vital reinforcements as Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo and Toni Kroos look to make the midweek fixture with Real Betis.
With the German training on Tuesday morning for the second day in a row , he could join Ronaldo and Marcelo in the squad now that their respective suspensions have come to an end.
Indeed, the left-back slot is set to open itself up for Wednesday night as Theo Hernandez hurt his shoulder at Estadio Anoeta, and he missed training the day before the Betis clash along with Karim Benzema, Mateo Kovacic and Jesus Vallejo.
Vallejo has received a fresh knock having been absent for the season so far while Kovacic has a longer road to recovery ahead of him.
That could open up a bench spot for Alvaro Tejero, who trained with the first team on Tuesday as rondos and speed exercises were the order of the day.
