Bale set to miss out?

Gareth Bale looks set to miss out against Juventus in his home city.

Wales forward Bale has been out due to a calf injury for the past six weeks, he has returned to full training but has admitted he has not fully recovered from an ankle operation earlier in the season that he believes hd caused the latest problem.

The other players are all in good condition, and there’s debate about whether Bale or Isco should be part of the starting line-up, which is improtant for Real if they could complete their first league and European double since 1958.

His longer term future with the club had also been a talking point during the last few weeks.

Bale’s recent absence was not his first and there is a strong sense frustration is growing over the frequency of his injuries.

“He has lost a lot of games with injuries and in the meantime new and very good players have emerged,”

“I think some of the club’s confidence in him is declining. Florentino Perez signed him with the idea he would compete with Neymar for future Ballon d’Or awards, but we’re already starting to see that’s not going to happen.”

Amid all the negative talk, perhaps the most accurate assessment came from Jose Felix Diaz in Marca. He argued that Bale’s return from injury is a solution rather than a problem and gives Zidane an extra “card up his sleeve”.

Bale probably won’t start against Juventus, but that does not necessarily mean his Bernabeu career is over.
