- Martin Odegaard missed two weeks with an injury.
- Real Sociedad physios are sweating over his physical condition.
- Our loanee is expected to be back just in time for the Real Madrid game.
Martin Odegaard has reportedly stepped up his recovery process to be ready to face Real Madrid this weekend.
So far the 20-year-old has been training alone, however there's hope he'll be fit by Saturday to play against his parent club. Real Sociedad's physios appear to be confident Martin will recover by either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Odegaard has been injured and missed Sociedad's last two games; he also didn't join the national team during the international break. The 20-year-old suffers from the swollen ankle.
Odegaard has no clause in his loan contract with La Real that prevents him from playing against Los Blancos. He has impressed with Sociedad this season, with 2 goals and 3 assists in 11 games.
The 20-year-old recently admitted he can't wait to face his parent club.
"It will be special for me to face Real Madrid," he told Radio Marca. "I still have friends there and I talk to some of them, like Fede Valverde. I’m glad he’s doing well and I always watch their games whenever I can. They have some incredible players and I really like Luka Modric."
Real Madrid has recently decided to get rid of 'fear clauses' in their loanees' contracts that prevented them from playing against the parent club. Los Blancos have already reaped 'the reward' with Borja Mayoral scoring against Madrid two weeks. Thankfully, his goal wasn't enough for Levante to avoid the defeat at the Bernabeu.
