Report: Gareth Bale Officially Out of the Team's List to Face Atlético Madrid

The club told this website that this is NOT a relapse.

Gareth Bale will not be available for today's derby. The club confirmed this site that the Welsh player is not at 100%, and is quite obvious that you need to be at 100% to play against Simeone's Atlético.

But fear not, madridistas. This is not a relapse. Bale has improved a lot in the last few days and he will be available soon, possibly against Villarreal this next Saturday. Since the Spanish Federation decided to ban Cristiano Ronaldo for the next three Liga BBVA games, it will be very important to have Bale available for those three matches. That's why the club's decision to leave Bale out makes sense.
