Real Madrid centre-back, Pepe was forced to leave Wednesday’s training session with an undisclosed allergy, but is believed to be an isolated incident and will not affect his status for this Sunday’s ‘El Clasico’ against Barcelona.


Following Tuesday’s win over Schalke to move into the final eight of the Champions League, manager Carlo Ancelotti took the team through a light training session, which featured only seven first team players playing at full speed, while the others went through their standard post-match recovery session.

Karim Benzema and Angel di Maria did light gym work, while the goalkeepers; Iker Casillas, Diego Lopez and Jesus Fernandez all did specific drills.

Thursday’s training session is expected to be more intense as Sunday’s league-deciding ‘El Clasico’ against Barcelona looms in the distance.
