Martin Odegaard (21 years old) will be available to play this Sunday (9:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) against Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena. It will be the debut of Real Madrid this season (their match on Matchday 1 was postponed) and the return of the Norwegian to the place where he shone last year and that helped him make Zidane ask for his return even though the initial plan was for him to stay a second year in San Sebastián.
The Norwegian's participation had been in doubt because he had not yet trained with the group on any day this week due to physical discomfort. He also did not participate in Tuesday's friendly against Getafe (white victory 6-0). However, this Thursday he has trained normally and will be available to play in Donosti.
It will be great news for Zidane, since it is the main novelty in the squad after the club decided not to undertake any reinforcement due to the difficult economic situation it is going through due to the coronavirus.
Despite recovering Odegaard, Zidane will have many absences for the league debut: Isco, Asensio, Hazard, Lucas Vázquez and Militao continued this Thursday on the sidelines of the group. The first three worked on the grass and are on the home stretch before joining their teammates, while the last two did specific work in the gym. Neither did Bale (negotiating his departure) nor Mariano (continues with his recovery process), although the latter two do not pose a problem for the coach because he does not have them.
