Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is likely to feature in his side’s derby clash with Atletico on Saturday, despite previous injury fears.

The Wales international was forced out of the starting XI for Real’s 4-1 win over Getafe on Saturday with a thigh injury, and had looked a doubt for the derby on Saturday.

However, head coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that the 24-year-old should play a part against Diego Simeone’s side at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“(Bale) trained individually today. He should be fit for Saturday’s match,” the Italian said on Tuesday.

Bale is likely to miss Wednesday’s trip to Elche but Ancelotti will be pleased to welcome back the Welshman for what he feels will be a difficult game on Saturday.

“Atletico Madrid are the team that have surprised me the most. They are playing well,” he added.
