Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have returned to training ahead of their clash with Villarreal on Wednesday night.
The duo, who both had a busy summer at the European Championships in France, were rested for Sunday's encounter with Espanyol at Cornella.
Ronaldo, who had flu, and Bale, who had a hip complaint, were not required in the 2-0 victory over the weekend but are set to start against Villarreal after being seen in training with the rest of the Los Blancos first team on Monday.
Madrid top the La Liga table by three points, while title rivals Barcelona will face a sterner test on Wednesday when they host Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid.
