Clasico boost for Real Madrid as Bale returns to training

Gareth Bale has returned to training with Real Madrid just three days before Sunday’s crucial Clasico clash with Barcelona.

The Wales international suffered a calf injury in the 2-1 Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on April 12.

He missed the 3-2 LaLiga win over Sporting Gijon last Saturday and the return fixture against Bayern on Tuesday of this week, in which Madrid triumphed 4-2 to progress to the semi-finals.

Bale completed a session with the starting XI from that game early on Thursday, which included drills with the ball and the use of the indoor facilities, Madrid confirmed.

It remains unclear whether the 27-year-old will be risked for Barca’s visit to Santiago Bernabeu.

A win on Sunday will see Madrid move six points clear at the top of the table, with a game in hand over the champions.

While Zinedine Zidane ponders whether to reunited his ‘BBC’ front line of Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Enrique will not be able to call on a full complement of ‘MSN’ attackers, as Neymar is suspended.
