Los Blancos receive double boost

The return of Marcelo and Luka Modric to first-team training will be a massive lift to Real Madrid ahead of their Champions League last-16 decider against Roma.

Full-back Marcelo has missed Los Blancos’ last two games due to a calf problem, while playmaker Modric experienced discomfort in his foot, forcing him out of the matchday squad for the clash with Levante on Wednesday.

Zinedine Zidane’s side were at their best as they claimed a comfortable 3-1 victory to move within nine points adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Before they welcome the Giallorossi to Santiago Bernabeu next week Tuesday, Real have a league match against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
