Bale recovers in time for Bayern

Reports in the Spanish Press this afternoon suggest that Gareth Bale has recovered from flu and will be available for tonight’s match.

Real Madrid host Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

But initial suggestions were that Los Blancos may have had to do so without the Welsh wizard, who was suffering from flu.

The former Tottenham didn’t stay with the rest of the squad at their usual pre-match hotel because of illness.

But all of the major sports dailies in Spain suggest that Bale has recovered in time and will be able to play against the Bavarians.

It means the ‘BBC’ attacking front-three will be back, with Cristiano Ronaldo also back in the team following a muscle injury.
