Madrid: Ahead of their match away to Real Betis next Sun­day, Real Madrid have been dealt a blow as Vini­cius Ju­nior missed train­ing for the sec­ond day in a row as he is suf­fer­ing with flu symp­toms. If the Brazil­ian is un­able to play, San­ti­ago So­lari will have only Karim Ben­zema as a vi­able for­ward op­tion due to the num­ber of ab­sen­tees in the squad. There are six play­ers in­jured in the Madrid squad at present - Gareth Bale, Marco Asen­sio, Toni Kroos, Mar­cos Llorente, Javi Sanchez and Thibaut Cour­tois while Lu­cas Vazquez is sus­pended after his red card against Real So­ciedad last week­end, and Vini­cius is a doubt, along with Mar­i­ano Diaz, who has just re­turned to train­ing with the group. At Valde­be­bas on Sat­ur­day morn­ing, there were 21 play­ers who took part in the ses­sion, in­clud­ing Castilla for­ward Cristo.Luca Zi­dane also took part and he will travel to Seville in the ab­sence of Cour­tois.
