Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale completed Thursday’s training session with the rest of the squad and appears to be ready to start the match between Los Blancos and Levante, which will be played this Saturday.

Bale had been recovering from “muscle fatigue,” according to the words of Wales’ coach Ryan Giggs. The winger wasn’t able to complete Real Madrid’s match against Alaves two weeks ago yet tried his best to play for his country during this FIFA break. However, he ultimately decided to return to the Spanish capital in order to recover properly from his issues.

If Bale is ready to go against Levante, he could get some rest when Viktoria Plzen visit the Bernabeu, just so that he has fresh legs in the upcoming El Clasico against Barcelona on October 28th. That will be a crucial match for both teams and having Bale in the starting lineup could be key for Los Blancos.
