Real Madrid star Gareth Bale rejoined the squad in training this Friday and will be available to face Alaves on Saturday. The Welshman had to leave last Saturday’s Madrid Derby against Atletico with what appeared to be a groin injury, but an MRI on Monday revealed that he didn’t suffer an injury. Furthermore, he got some rest and didn’t play against CSKA, so he should be fresh enough when Los Blancos visit Vitoria to play Alaves.

Bale is a crucial player for Real Madrid this season, even more so after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Welshman will be key now that Los Blancos want to bounce back from their past three games.

Alaves have been playing very well this season and will be a tough team to beat at their own stadium, so Madrid will need to be very careful this Saturday if they want to earn the three points.
