Real Madrid‘s pre-Club World Cup training got underway in Abu Dhabi on Monday afternoon as the 25 players summoned by Santiago Solari took to the pitch at the New York University in preparation for Wednesday’s semifinal against Kashima Antlers.

Karim Benzema trained with the side having withdrawn against Rayo Vallecano due to ankle discomfort, while Gareth Bale worked alongside Nacho and Mariano Diaz on the sidelines as he recovers from an ankle sprain.

Marco Asensio did start the session with his teammates, though he pulled out shortly after it got underway and is a doubt for the game.

Casemiro is the one returnee who trained without any issues and the Brazilian will be available for selection on Wednesday.
