Neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Gareth Bale completed Thursday’s training session with the rest of the Real Madrid squad, meaning that right now they should be considered questionable for Sunday’s home match against Espanyol.

Per Real Madrid’s official report:

After a hard-fought win at Signal Iduna Park, Real Madrid have returned to training and now turn their focus to the LaLiga tie against Espanyol, which will be played this Sunday (8:45pm CEST) at the Santiago Bernabéu. Zidane's squad focused mainly on ball work, and the coach saw fit to involve Tejero, Quezada, Óscar and Jaime from the youth team.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale trained using the indoor facilities, while Kovacic, Marcelo, Theo and Benzema continue their respective recovery processes. Theo and Benzema also headed out to the pitch to work on tailor-made fitness programmes.

Real Madrid will most likely publish a medical report on Bale today, although the Welsh star has been called up by his country for the next FIFA break.
