Bale included in Madrid squad for Vallecas


    Gareth Bale has been included in Real Madrid’s 20-man squad to make the short trip to Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night.

    The Welshman had been a doubt due to a foot injury after suffering a knock in the 9-1 triumph over Granada at the weekend.

    Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed Bale’s knock in Tuesday’s pre-match press conference and said he would assess the forward on the day of the game.

    Bale’s inclusion in the squad suggests he is ready to continue in Madrid’s three-pronged attack alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema but he could also be called-upon as an impact substitute if needed.

    Madrid squad:

    Goalkeepers: Casillas, Keylor Navas and Pacheco.
    Defenders: Varane, Ramos, Coentrão, Marcelo, Carvajal and Nacho.
    Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Isco, Lucas Silva, Modric and Illarra.
    Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Chicharito and Jesé.
