A medical report on Madrid’s official website confirmed tests had showed a ‘grade-I calf injury’ to Bale’s left leg.

Consequently, AS is reporting a recovery time of ‘2-4 weeks’, ruling him out of Los Blancos’ upcoming Liga games against Real Sociedad, Real Betis and Sevilla, as well as their Copa del Rey tie with Leganes.
