It was all smiles from the Real Madrid stars as they took part in a training session days after their triumph in the French capital.
Zinedine Zidane’s side sealed their place in the Champions League quarter final with a 2-1 victory in the second leg over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, seeing them comfortably qualify 5-2 on aggregate.
But Zidane’s attentions will now turn back to the La Liga with a clash against high-flying Eibar on the weekend.

The Madrid boss took charge of his side’s last training seassion at their Valdebebas training facilities on Friday before the trip to eighth-placed Eibar.
He had a full squad out on the training pitch, with the exception of his son Luca, who is out with an injury.
The mood in the Madrid camp appeared understandably high following their impressive away win at PSG – the first time any side has won at the Parc des Princes this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Marcelo were all pictured laughing as the trio shared a joke during the light-hearted session.

Despite the laid-back nature of the session Zidane was eager to put his players through their paces ahead of Saturday’s tie and casted a watchful eye over his players from the side as they went through various training drills.
The Madrid players kicked off training with passing and pressing exercises in rondos, before turning their attention to physical elements.
They then went back to ball-based exercises before finishing off with crossing and shots on goal.
Zidane will be hoping the positive atmosphere among his players will help secure the right result this weekend, having struggled for form in La Liga this season.
Madrid are currently sat third in the table but are someway off the pace, trailing league-leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona by 15 points while Eibar have had an impressive campaign in eighth position.
A win at the weekend could possibly see them move as high as sixth and into contention to qualify for Europe next season.
Madrid came out on top with an easy 3-0 win the last time the two sides met back in October but Zidane knows it will be no walk in the park this Saturday and has prepared his side for a tough encounter.
