Gareth Bale has been named as a substitute for Real Madrid’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Ajax on Tuesday.

The Welshman’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent weeks, reaching a crescendo in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Barcelona.

Bale was booed by his own fans as he left the field in the 61st minute, following a performance in which he touched the ball just 20 times – a situation his agent, Jonathan Barnett, described as a “disgrace”.

Madrid, who hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Amsterdam, have replaced Bale with Lucas Vazquez.

The Spain international joins Karim Benzema and young Brazilian Vinicius Junior in attack while the suspended Sergio Ramos’ spot goes to Nacho Fernandez.
