Real Madrid pair Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane will both return for the Galacticos' game with Racing Santander this week.

The French playmaker had been struggling with an ankle knock while Ronaldo injured his left leg against Real Sociedad in April.

Both sat out the 1-0 win over Osasuna on Sunday but are now back in full training and should take the field against Santander.

A win for Madrid would see them keep up the challenge on second-placed Valencia in La Liga and the return of Zidane and Ronaldo will be a boost to coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro.

However, Brazilian Julio Baptista damaged his ankle in the win over Osasuna as is definitely out of Thursday's game.

Baptista could return for Madrid's penultimate game of the season against Villarreal at the weekend.
