Update On Gareth Bale’s Injury, As Real Madrid Prepare To Face Off Against Espanyol

Real Madrid ace who went off in the 2-1 Champions League win over Sporting Lisbon is set to miss the club’s La Liga clash against Espanyol on Sunday due to and injury that he picked up during the game. The 27 year old superstar received a standing ovation by the Bernabeu crowd during a lively performance in the match, prior to him taking quite a heavy knock when his team were still trailing 1-0.

According to a report from Marca, the attacker, who is on the verge of being offered a new big money contract by the Spanish outfit is said to have a painful contusion on his right hip.

Though the medics of the reigning European champions do not believe that the injury is too serious, they do not wish to risk the Welsh international for Sunday’s league match.

Bale will not be playing against Espanyol at the weekend, after being helped off the pitch, when Real were trailing initially in the game.

In his place, it might either be James Rodriguez or Lucas Vasquez who might get the opportunity to showcase their talent at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat.

The former Tottenham man will now undergo a few tests in the upcoming days in order to determine how serious the problem is.

Manager Zinedine Zidane will relieved by the fact that it is not something serious, though he will want the winger to be back to full fitness, as soon as possible. Zidane wants more titles and will need his team to be at full strength.
