Bale set for Fuenlabrada return

Gareth Bale is set to return to action for Real Madrid against Fuenlabrada in Tuesday night’s Copa Del Rey clash at the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos host the Segunda B outfit having won last month’s first leg 2-0 at Estadio Fernando Torres and are in pole position to progress to the next round.

The Welsh forward has missed over two months of action with his last appearance for Zinedine Zidane’s men coming against Borussia Dortmund on September 26, missing 11 matches in total.

Now Marca report the former Spurs player has trained as normal with his teammates and is keen to play against the Madrid-based side in Tuesday’s clash.

Bale, 28, has started eight matches this campaign but has not started alongside both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema since April.
