Gareth Bale Will Make His Debut This Saturday: Bernabéu Bites 09.13.2013

Denis Doyle

In today's edition of Bernabéu Bites we take a look at Gareth Bale making his debut this Saturday, Iker Casillas starting against Galatasaray and more.

  • Ancelotti spoke in press conference this morning. He confirmed that Gareth Bale will make his debut against Villarreal, but he has yet to decide whether the Welsh player will do it off the bench or as a starter. Bale doesn't seem ready to play 90 minutes.
  • Illarramendi will start in the midfield, according to Ancelotti's words. The club released the list for the match against Villarreal and Ancelotti will have to play with Nacho as a left back due to Arbeloa's absence with a small injury. Modric, Isco and Cristiano Ronaldo were able to join the list even though they spent half of this week recovering from their problems.
