Gareth Bale’s injury woes may be set to continue as the Real Madrid star was withdrawn at the half in his side’s scoreless draw with Atletico.
The forward had gotten off to a fine start in La Liga, with three goals and two assists in five games, as well as a tally in the Champions League.
But held off the scoresheet in a disappointing 3-0 loss to Sevilla midweek, Bale looked to get back among the goals in the big clash against their local rivals.
“It’s not good at all so many injuries (Bale, Isco, Marcelo),” Real boss Julen Lopetegui said after confirming that Bale was taken off with a knock and would have medical tests on Sunday.
“What the coaches have to do is to look for solutions. And trust on our squad until death. Just look how Ceballos played today. He was fantastic”
