Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale completed Friday’s training session with the rest of the squad as he has recovered from the injury he picked up more than a month ago when Madrid visited Borussia Dortmund.

It seems that Bale will be available when Madrid face Las Palmas next Sunday, although coach Zinedine Zidane will almost certainly keep him on the bench and then give him some minutes late in the game.

Bale has been needed lately as Madrid have lacked scoring punch upfront and he could actually help the team. However, Los Blancos should not rush him knowing that his muscle injuries are always tricky. Madrid should have more than enough tools to beat Las Palmas and that way Bale could use the next few days to get completely ready to play and contribute from the get go. It will be interesting to see if he makes the squad list for Sunday’s home game.
