Real Madrid star Gareth Bale rejoined the squad in Monday’s training session, which took place in Abu Dhabi. It definitely looks like the Welsh attacker will be available when Los Blancos face Al Jazira in the Semifinals of the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup, even though he’s missed more than two months barring the 22 minutes he played in the Copa del Rey.

Therefore, Real Madrid’s injury report is empty. Still, Sergio Ramos received medical attention during the training session as he felt some discomfort on his calf, according to reports from Spain.

Zinedine Zidane will not be expected to take any chances with those players who are not 100% ready to play the whole game as Madrid are considered the heavy favorites against Al Jazira. Still, the French coach might want to give Bale some quality minutes in order to have him fit enough for the upcoming El Clasico against Barcelona, which will be played on December 23rd.
