Zinedine Zidane was very clear in press conference and he announced that Gareth Bale won’t be available to play against Bayern Munich. The Welshman suffered another injury at the Allianz Arena and he had to be substituted by the manager, who chose Marco Asensio surprisingly.
The Welshman missed the game against Sporting Gijón and he won’t be available against Bayern Munich. However, Bale is working to play on Sunday El Clásico, the game against FC Barcelona that can decide La Liga title. Zidane confirmed in press conference his absence in the Champions League clash but he is cautious with the game against The Blaugranas.
Zidane doesn’t want to risk with the different injuries, so he prefers to be patient with Bale, who suffered a problem near the ankle. The Welshman had surgery in this ankle and since then he’s playing with pain. At the Allianz Arena, Bale the injury was even more painful, so he prefered to be substituted instead of risking another serious problem.
Therefore, the physical problems of Gareth Bale currently are not very important. The British winger is training at Valdebebas trying to be ready for the important game against FC Barcelona. However, Real Madrid shouldn’t be very concerned because Asensio or Isco have showed that they are able to replace the Welshman.
Since his return after the injury, Gareth Bale is not showing a great level. He was a very important player at the end of the last season and at the beginning of the current one. However, his performances are getting poorer, perhaps because of this pain in his ankle.
Bale has only scored against Espanyol and Villarreal in 2017, being the less important player of the BBC. In La Liga he’s scored 7 goals this season, whereas last season he found the net 17 games. Will Bale show again a great level in the last games of the season?
