25-Year-Old Midfielder Real Madrid La Liga
Bale was held out of Saturday's La Liga match against Levante due to a pulled glute and he could miss Wednesday's Champions League match against Liverpool, the club's official website reports.
Isco started in place of Bale on Saturday and registered a goal and an assist, showing that he can play alongside James Rodriguez, something many felt could be a problem this season. Manager Carlo Ancelotti made a point to say that he didn't want to risk Bale, which is certainly better news than potentially missing a number of matches. If he does not play at Anfield, his next opportunity will be Saturday's Clasico.
