Real Madrid won’t have its pricey acquisition available to take on La Liga foe Elche, but they display more than enough talent at their disposal to leave with a victory.
Gareth Bale, who signed a transfer deal that made him the sport’s richest player, suffered “fatigue in his left thigh muscle,” according to ESPN FC. The 24-year-old midfielder is expected to miss Wednesday’s match against Elche but return on Saturday to face Atletico Madrid.
Even without their new star, who arrived in style with a goal during his team debut on Sept. 14, Los Blancos should trounce Elche in the two’s first meeting in 24 years. via | Bleacher Report
