The present of Gareth Bale is linked to great news, but these are usually negative in Real Madrid. The Welsh player was left out of the list of summoned for the game against Getafe due to muscular ailments that afflict him and do not allow him to have continuity in the team led by Carlo Ancelotti. This accumulation of absences cast doubt on its continuity in the next season.
Quite apart from the positives for coronavirus and the annoyances that Carvajal maintains, Bale is the only casualty among the 23 players who have remained concentrated in Valdebebas for the Coliseum match. Ancelotti takes three homegrown players to Getafe: Toni Fuidias, Rafa Marín and Peter.
Who also joins the call is Courtois after LaLiga gave the go-ahead for his incorporation to training after the false positive last Wednesday. This situation is similar to the one Valverde experiences because he tested negative in the last test.
Likewise, another who is already recovered is Camavinga, but the Frenchman will not be able to be part of the match because he is suspended after accumulating yellow cards. The last was the one he received in San Mamés against Bilbao in the last game of 2021. Due to COVID-19 cases, Vinicius Jr and Jovic were ruled out.
Bale has not seen action with Real Madrid since September 2021 when he was injured playing for his national team in the first international preseason break. His comeback for Wales came in November, but with sore thighs that kept him from playing.
Ancelotti, who started him in the first three games of the season, has only been able to count on him for the derby against Atlético. He included him in the list, but finally did not give him minutes. Later, he tested positive for coronavirus and missed the last two games of the year.
The club is confident that it will arrive for next Saturday’s game against Valencia, the last before Madrid head to Saudi Arabia to play the Spanish Super Cup, where on Wednesday 12 they will face Barcelona in the first semifinal.
