Bale is expected to be sidelined for up to three weeks because of the calf injury he suffered during Saturday's match against Malaga, ESPN FC reports.

Bale couldn't play even five minutes Saturday before feeling something in his calf, and the injury will keep him out of Wednesday's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, plus a number of La Liga ties. Real Madrid will also be without Luka Modric, who is out for six weeks with a knee injury, with Isco likely to replace one of them.
