Gareth Bale will most likely return to the Starting XI tomorrow against Celta, according to AS. The Welshman has already recovered from his calf injury and rejoined the team in training last Tuesday. Zinedine Zidane said then that Madrid “were hoping” to have Bale back “this next weekend.”
Real Madrid should still play it safe with Bale’s injury. The Welshman has had several calf injuries in the past and both the players and the doctors should be careful and sure that he’s 100% ready to play again.
Bale has been a very important player for Real this season and his return should improve the way Los Blancos have played. It seems that after two seasons in Madrid he’s found his groove and was starting to play up to the expectations created when Pérez decided to pay close to €100 million for his signing. Zidane should be happy about having Bale back, that’s for sure.
