Bale to start against Juventus?

It’s reported Gareth Bale will be fit to start for Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final against Juventus on Tuesday.

Marca says the Wales international will return from a calf injury suffered against Malaga, leaving Karim Benzema as the only one of the BBC likely miss out.

Benzema could though be on the bench, Marca speculates, while Bale would partner Cristiano Ronaldo in a 4-4-2 formation.

Isco or Javier Hernandez is the choice facing Carlo Ancelotti, Marca continue, as Sergio Ramos could continue in midfield.

Hernandez would miss out in a 4-4-2 formation but if Ancelotti uses Bale’s return to go back to 4-3-3, the Mexico international would have a place and Isco would miss out.
