Real Madrid has just released Gareth Bale's medical report but, just like they did with Luka Modric, they have not provided any information about his recovery. All we can say so far is that the Welshman has an injury in his left soleus muscle, which is not much more than what we got to know after Saturday's game against Málaga. However, most reports claim that the usual recovery period should range between two and three weeks.

What we may be almost certain of is that Bale, who has not taken part in today's training session, will not be able to participate in the crucial Champions League game against Atlético de Madrid to be played on Wednesday. Therefore, our coach Carlo Ancelotti will have a hard time to configure a competitive lineup without him, Luka Modric, Marcelo and, probably, Karim Benzema. Jesé Rodríguez and Javier Chicharito Hernández will need to work hard in order to earn a spot in Real Madrid's frontline for their most important match so far this season.
