The Real Madrid squad completed their final training session ahead of tomorrow’s UEFA Champions League matchday 5 group stage clash against Shakhtar Donetsk. The players, led by head coach Zinedine Zidane trained at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev after the conclusion of the usual pre-match press conference obligations. The game will kick off at 18:55 CET on Tuesday night and it’s an important game for Los Blancos, because three more points would secure qualification to the next round.

The session started with warm-up exercises, followed by rondos, sprinting and dribbling drills. The players then played a match on a reduced sized pitch and rounded off the session with shooting and crossing drills.

All the players who travelled to Kiev were at Zinedine Zidane’s disposal and trained normally.
