Dani Carvajal could be ready to face Atletico in the Madrid derby on Saturday after coming through training on Thursday.

The Real Madrid right-back picked up an injury during Los Blancos’ Champions League opener against Roma and missed the trip to Sevilla on Wednesday.

Carvajal’s return for Real would be massive with left-back Marcelo out of the game with a calf injury sustained in the chastening 3-0 defeat in Seville.

Nacho, who started in place of Carvajal on Wednesday, will likely switch flanks to fill in for the Brazilian.

Real need to regain confidence and momentum following the Sevilla defeat – a game which they realistically could have lost even more heavily.

Julen Lopetegui’s men have shown they can beat small teams, but it’s now time for them to prove they can also take care of business against the best in La Liga.

Real were soundly beaten by Sevilla.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was given a warmer reception than usual when he returned to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Wednesday night.

The centre-back, who was born in Andalusia and started his career at Sevilla – his boyhood club – upset Los Rojiblancos fans by defecting to Los Blancos in 2005.

Since then, plenty of water has passed under the bridge as the 32-year-old has returned ‘home’ on many occasions but always copped stick and unpleasantries from the fans that used to sing his name.

But, during this week’s La Liga contest, in which Sevilla won 3-0, the home support decided not to jeer their former player too much and instead back the hosts to a resounding victory.

Marca reports Ramos was given a fairly easy ride this time around as Sevilla supporters roared their side to success on the pitch instead.
