I don’t want to take risks as we have Tuesday’s game [against Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu] and Luka is not yet ready. “Kroos is not in the squad tomorrow, either, as he has the flu, and is not ready.” Gareth Bale and Marcelo will return to Real Madrid’s squad for Saturday’s game with Celta Vigo, but Zinedine Zidane will be without central midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Madrid will also be without Karim Benzema for Celta’s visit to the Spanish capital after the Frenchman was ruled out for around three weeks after being substituted in the defeat to Atletico Madrid.
