Gareth Bale has not been included on Real Madrid's list to play against Copenhaguen after experiencing some pain on his left thigh again. Bale has been struggling with that injury since he joined Real Madrid, being forced to miss the games against Getafe and Elche. He did play 45 minutes against Atlético Madrid but it seems that he wasn't ready enough to make that kind of effort.

Wales' boss Chris Coleman said that Bale should not be rushed to join the squad after not having a full preseason. Ancelotti will now be forced to be cautious with him until he gets completely in shape.

Bale will undergo tests on his left thigh this Wednesday morning.
