Real Madrid pair James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema train on Tuesday

Real Madrid attacking pair James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema both took part in a training session for the Spanish giants on Tuesday.

James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema both trained for Real Madrid on Tuesday as the attacking pair close on a return to first-team action.

James has been on the sidelines since September with a thigh problem and admitted earlier this month that he was 'unsure' when he would return to the fold.

Frenchman Benzema, meanwhile, picked up a hamstring problem during the last international break and has missed the Spanish side's last three matches.

The attacking duo were both seen on the training field on Tuesday, however, and according to AS, Benzema could feature against Las Palmas at the weekend.

Gareth Bale, meanwhile, is not expected to return to action until next month after aggravating a calf injury during the recent international break.
