Real Madrid key duo will take advantage of international break to achieve match fitness

It is no secret that Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Eder Militao are nearing full fitness.

Following up on the story, a report from Mundo Deportivo has affirmed that the two key players will aim to fully recover and regain their competitive edge during the current international break before returning to action.

The goalkeeper and the defender have been injured since the beginning of the season and for their swift return, it is expected that the team will play internal friendlies during the break to ensure everything is seamless.

Just as club football takes a pause for a week, owing to international commitment, Militao and Courtois are revving up their engines, aiming for more than just a cameo appearance in Real Madrid’s return clash against Athletic Club on March 31st.

As Carlo Ancelotti confirmed in a recent press briefing, both the goalkeeper and the defender are utilizing this break to intensify their return to team training, including engaging in friendly matches against Castilla.

"I’m quite optimistic. And as we are now, we are better than ever. Militao is back and Courtois is back," said the manager.

Despite the absence of official competition, these sessions will serve as a vital step for the duo, who haven’t seen action since last August, to rediscover their footballing rhythm.

It is to be understood that Real Madrid are putting all the work into the duo’s fitness because they know their presence will be important against Manchester City in the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League.

Their comeback holds weight beyond mere participation since Militao and Courtois were instrumental in Real Madrid’s resurgence during the 21/22 season, notably in the thrilling comeback against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League.

Their presence alone commands authority and respect and regardless, both players are in the final stages of their recovery. They are poised to embark on the remainder of the season as a fresh start rather than an end.
