How to Watch Real Betis vs Real Madrid

With Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Llorente all struggling with injuries, Solari admitted the club might have to change preparation and training.

Argentine head coach Santiago Solari led the practice, which featured Real Madrid Castilla player Cristo Ramon Gonzalez Perez, who replaced French forward Karim Benzema in the last minutes of Wednesday's 3-0 Copa del Rey win over Leganes.

He added: "We will put all the enegery possible into the game without thinking it's against Madrid or any other side".

Real Madrid have endured a rocky season so far, with former coach Julen Lopetegui first sacked as manager of Spain for agreeing to take on the Madrid job while at the World Cup and then sacked as manager of the club following a torrid start. It is true that bringing new players into a squad which has won three Champions Leagues is also part of our job.

"Injuries? I would not call them unfortunate, they are part of the game". It is true there are a lot of injuries.

However, Mariano did join the team for part of the practice. We want the players who can't train to recover because we need them back to give us more options.

There is no television coverage of Barcelona vs Eibar in the UK.
