Real Madrid are coming towards the end of their scheduled winter break as they take on Sevilla in the Copa del Rey round of 16 on January 4, 2017.The Manager, Zinedine Zidane led an open training session in front of a packed crowd today the 30th of December, 2016.
According to Daily Mall, Real Madrid may not be in action again until the new year, but that does not mean they are simply resting over the Christmas period – even if they have been allowed a slight indulgence.
The La Liga leaders have had a fine start to the campaign, pulling ahead of fierce rivals Barcelona going into the winter break. They also captured the Club World Cup earlier in December.
Zinedine Zidane’s side might have thought that would have earned them a long break, but the coach was putting them through their paces early on Friday morning. But they were given a break in the afternoon as the squad held their festive lunch, with all the big names in attendance.
