False alarm: Bale is OK

The simulation of the league start that Zidane arranged yesterday afternoon in Valdebebas (at 7:00 p.m., to practically coincide with the Madrid-Eibar schedule next Sunday) only left a shadow, which in the end does not have a greater route . Gareth Bale was the great absentee from the trial, so it is normal that speculations inevitable about the Welsh medical history would soon arise.. It could have been reserved for being at the limit one week from the start of that 11-game Miniliga in which Zidane's troop is going to play the title with Barça. Further, Bale does not allow medical reports of his ailments to be published, which fueled the mystery of his non-participation in the game.

Finally and as AS could know, there is no case. Bale spoke with the coaches and they preferred not to risk a week of the tour of matches that await the team every 72 hours. Next Tuesday, when the team returns to Valdebebas, Bale will be one of a squad that has received two days off from Zidane to fully prepare for the matches of Eibar and Valencia, both at Di Stéfano and within four days. Bale is ok. One more option for an attack in which Zizou also counts for the band position with Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Hazard, Brahim and Asensio. Almost nothing.
