Lucas Vazquez fighting to be fit for Real Madrid against Inter Milan

Lucas Vazquez is battling to make Real Madrid's Champions League clash with Inter Milan.

Marca reports there will only be two training sessions before Los Blancos' vital Champions League match against Inter on Tuesday, and the focus is on Lucas after he suffered a muscle problem against Huesca.

Despite this, Lucas has not been ruled out and there is moderate optimism that Zinedine Zidane's makeshift right-back will be able to once again fill in.

The situation in the right-back position is worrying, with Dani Carvajal and Nacho Fernandez still far off making a comeback from their respective injuries, while Alvaro Odriozola has barely made it through a couple of training sessions after a knock of his own.

In Sunday's session, the starters against Huesca worked inside the facilities. The rest of the group carried out some different exercises, which ended ended with shots at goal.

Nacho, Carvajal, Martin Odegaard and Odriozola did a combination of work in the gym and out on the pitches.
