Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijón with a comfortable 5-1 final score but the fans have every reason to be worried about Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema's injuries. Both players left the game and will know how bad their injuries are when they undergo tests tomorrow.

While Karim Benzema appears to have just a knock on his ankle, something that should not keep him out for long, Bale could be out for a while with what seemed to be a calf injury. The Welsh has always had problems on that calf and that's why he might need to take some time off in order to recover properly from that injury.

Both Bale and Benzema have played very well this season and Real could definitely miss them if they have to miss an extended amount of time. Real Madrid should publish the medical report on Bale and Benzema this Tuesday, stay tuned for more news.
