Real Madrid have been without young star signing Arda Guler since the start of the season.
Signed from Fenerbahce, Guler was expected to be a top signing for Real Madrid. However, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder picked up a muscle injury during training in pre-season.
Guler had since undergone surgery to correct the problem and is now expected to return after the Champions League game.
Carlo Ancelotti confirmed this in his recent press conference.
“Arda Guler will return with the team on Monday,” Carlo Ancelotti has said in his press conference for the Union Berlin game on Tuesday.
Guler is expected to be on the bench for the game against Atletic Madrid on Sunday.
This will serve as a big boost to the team, as Carlo Ancelotti is short of options in the attacking area.
Meanwhile, Dani Ceballos and Ferland Mendy are also back to the team.
