Gareth Bale’s stop-start season at Real Madrid has taken another turn with the Welsh winger set to miss Wednesday’s match with Olimpic Xativa.
The former Spurs man has been in top form recently after a stuttering start to life in the Spanish capital.
The 24-year-old was out in late September with a foot injury, and today it has been revealed that the attacker has ‘taken a knock' and will sit out the Copa clash.
Los Blancos play the lower league club tomorrow looking for a better result than their 0-0 draw two weeks’ ago.
However, they will have to do so without Bale after Carlo Ancelotti claimed that “he took a knock to his calf. We’ll have to see how he progresses, but I don’t think he’ll have any problems for Sunday.”
