Bale training alone, Arda sits out

Gareth Bale didn’t train with the rest of his Real Madrid teammates on Tuesday while Arda Turan sat out Barcelona’s session.

Marca reports Bale was confined to the gym as Los Blancos prepare to play Villarreal on Wednesday, but don’t offer a reason why.

Madrid will definitely be without Dani Carvajal against the Yellow Submarine as the right-back is suffering with a quadriceps muscle injury.

Arda, meanwhile, missed Barca’s session prior to playing Deportivo La Coruna at Riazor due to gastroenteritis, and the club report his involvement in the game in Galicia will be determined by how he recovers from the ailment.
