BREAKING NEWS: Bale in Real Madrid squad for El Clasico
Gareth Bale will return to the Real Madrid squad for Sunday's Clasico against Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu, head coach Zinedine Zidane has confirmed.
Bale was absent from Madrid's dramatic extra-time triumph over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday, the second match he missed due to a calf problem sustained during the first leg at the Allianz Arena.
But the 27-year-old Wales forward returned to training on Friday and Zidane told a pre-match news conference on Saturday he will have a part to play against Madrid's bitter rivals.
"Bale will be with us tomorrow," he said. "Then you will see if he starts or not."
