Marcelo is back but Kroos, Modric are doubt against PSG

Real Madrid were having plenty of the ball, but Zidane's team were finding it hard to work space in the final third.

It is worth mentioning that Real Madrid defender Marcelo and Vallejo participated in Thursday's training session.

Real Madrid vs Getafe: Real Madrid looking for the great win against Getafe in the Spanish Primera Division today.

It was the away side that had the game's first attempt in the 19th minute, but Angel - having broken into the Real Madrid box - could only fire into the body of the home side's goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

It was Real's first defeat by the Catalans in 11 years after the latest in a long line of insipid displays without Ronaldo that highlight how important the evergreen 33-year-old - who has scored 12 goals in his last seven appearances - is to the side.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane omitted the Portuguese from last week's win at Leganes in which Real were less than convincing, needing a 90th minute Sergio Ramos penalty to seal a 3-1 victory. I'm an optimist until the end. What I think is we have won nothing yet.

"People might think it is already over, but that never happens in football", he said. "But his attitude is always spectacular, he trains well, and that issue for me does not exist".

But Ronaldo might be starting to see the advantages of playing at No. 9 and can sense a massive window of opportunity as Real Madrid look ready to go on a mission this summer to find a new one.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the side being rested for the Espanyol clash this week. "That is normal, same as all the players".

If they do tie Ronaldo down, it will give them more leverage when they are negotiating in the summer transfer market too. The second leg is on the horizon now and it looks like it will be lacking in star power with Neymar out along with the increasingly probable absences of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric along with the recent injury scare for Kylian Mbappe.

Real Madrid dominated the period that followed, although chances were still few and far between, with a long-range Carvajal strike - which missed the post - just about as close as Los Blancos came to scoring a second approaching the final moments of the first half. Did you expect that? The Portugal superstar continues to show superb goalscoring form despite Real's struggles in the league in 2017/18.

TRI-AD will also strengthen the collaboration within the Toyota Group on research and development and recruit top talent globally. I have no doubt that we can translate the fundamental ideas of TPS from the production of hardware to the production of software.
