Good news for Carlo Ancelotti and his crew. Gareth Bale has recovered from the calf injury he sustained during Real Madrid's home match against Málaga and will be ready to play in Sevilla this Saturday after rejoining the group in this Thursday's training session.

Real Madrid's coaching staff expected to have Bale fully fit for that crucial Liga BBVA match, and that's what will happen. Furthermore, Karim Benzema should also be ready to visit Juventus next Wednesday as he aims to train with the rest of his teammates on Sunday.

Although Bale is not having a brilliant season, his presence is really important to this team, as he will provide another goalscoring threat to Real's offensive line. If Benzema manages to make it to Wednesday's Champions League contest, Luka Modric will be the team's only injured player. The Croatian is trying to recover in time for the return leg against Juventus but the most-likely scenario is that he should be fit for the last couple of Liga BBVA games and a potential Champions League Final.
