Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez injury doubts vs. Depor

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane believes anything can happen as his side vies for the Liga title.

Keylor Navas and Dani Carvajal have returned to full training with Real Madrid but Gareth Bale and Lucas Vazquez remain injury doubts for Los Blancos' final push to overtake Barcelona for the Spanish league title.

Zinedine Zidane's side go to Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday a point behind leaders Barca, who will retain the trophy should they match or better Madrid's result in their game at Granada.

Navas and Carvajal missed last Sunday's 3-2 win at home to Valencia due to injury concerns, while Bale and Modric also sat the game out due to reportedly minor muscle complaints and Lucas Vazquez picked up a knee strain.

Having been given a day off on Tuesday, there was good news on Wednesday morning with Navas and Carvajal both taking a full part in the session.

 A club statement read: "The squad returned to training and began to prepare for the final La Liga game, which will be played this Saturday against Deportivo at Riazor.

"Carvajal and Keylor Navas completed with the group a session which mixed both physical and ball work. Bale ran on his own and touched the ball on the pitch, while Lucas Vazquez continued his recovery process. Zidane also counted on Real Madrid Castilla players Borja Mayoral, [Martin] Odegaard and Marcos Llorente for the session."

Preparado para tratamiento con láser... Ready for laser treatment... ����✌️

Modric was not mentioned in Madrid's statement, but appeared in photos on the club website from the session. The Croatia international is expected to play at Depor, although on Tuesday he did post a photo saying he was undergoing laser treatment -- presumably for the injury which kept him out of the game against Valencia.

Zidane has said he is not yet thinking about May 28's Champions League final against Atletico Madrid in Milan, and fully focused on the chance to win the domestic title. But the Frenchman is not expected to risk any key players for Saturday's game at Riazor, where Los Blancos won 8-2 last season.
