James Rodriguez remains absent from Real Madrid practices. The midfielder traveled to Colombia with permission from the Merengue club to witness the birth of his new son, which is why the Merengue 5-0 win over Leganés was lost.
Although it was expected that the coffee flyer will enter the call for this weekend, it will not be for the duel against Real Betis, because it just made its arrival in the city of Madrid, where it was expected in the Sports City of the white box in Valdebebas .
He only had one training session this week, so he was not taken into account by Zidane for Saturday’s game, by date 12 of LaLiga at the Santiago Bernabeu.
James just adds a goal and an assist in 371 minutes played in nine games (5 starts) so far this season.
