Real Madrid look to have been handed a fitness boost with their Champions League tie against Liverpool on the horizon.
The Reds take on Zinedine Zidane’s side in the quarter-finals of the competition next month, with the first leg due to take place on April 6.
Should Liverpool see off the 13-time winners of the European Cup, they will earn a place in the semi-final against either Chelsea or Porto.
Like Liverpool, Madrid have been severely hampered by injuries this season, but there are signs that things could be improving for the La Liga giants.
As reported by Spanish news outlet AS, Madrid could welcome Dani Carvajal back into contention for the Liverpool game.
Carvajal has been injured since mid-February with a thigh problem, with what is his fourth different injury of the season.
However, it has been claimed that the defender is back training on the grass, with the majority of his team mates away on international duty, and could be available for the game against Liverpool in just over a week’s time.
Injuries have meant that Zidane has been forced to manoeuvre his squad over the past few months, including replacing the injured Carvajal.
In their last game against Celta Vigo, Zidane opted to use winger Lucas Vascuez at right-back due to there being no other options at his disposal.
Madrid and Zidane will hope that Carvajal is fit and available to face Liverpool or they risk going with a makeshift option in a crucial position yet again.
