Drente's Injury Give Madrid Another Shock ...

Real Madrid's preparations for el Clásico were given another blow when Royston Drenthe limped out of training on Monday and club medics confirmed that he could be a doubt for the trip to Camp Nou.

Drenthe Injury Adds To Real Madrid Gloom
The Dutch international picked up a knock on his right leg during a session that was designed for the players who did not play the entire game against Sevilla to stretch.

While it is not predicted to keep Drenthe out long-term, the injury is bad news for coach Bernd Schuster who already has a crisis at the back with several players out.

Marcelo was booked on Sunday evening and will be suspended while Pepe is not set to make it back in time and Gabriel Heinze and Miguel Torres are also doubts.

Drenthe made a substitute's appearance against Sevilla and could have booked himself a place in the starting line-up against Barça as he looked comfortable down the left.

Only a handful of players were called in for the training session as Javier Saviola, Javi García, Marcelo, Christoph Metzelder, Alberto Bueno, Rafael Van der Vaart and Drenthe took to the field with goalkeepers Codina and Jerzy Dudek.

Wesley Sneijder was also present, but he trained alone as he looks to complete a personal recuperation programme after suffering a muscle injury that was predicted to keep him out for two weeks.
