One player that hasn\’t been wonderful quite yet—and certainly underwhelmed in his Clasico debut—is Gareth Bale. The former Tottenham man deserves the patience of Real Madrid supporters—he\’s adjusting to a new league, new system and has been troubled by injuries early in the season—but he soon needs to show the class that made him a Galactico signing this summer.
Real Madrid could be getting a major boost in the midfield, however, as Xabi Alonso could be returning to the squad, according to Dermot Corrigan of ESPN. With Alonso back, Real Madrid won\’t need to go experimenting with Sergio Ramos in the midfield.
In that report, manager Carlo Ancelotti said Karim Benzema would start at forward, while both Isco and Bale could feature.
Corrigan also noted that Sevilla haven\’t won away from home in over a year. That\’s not a good away record with a trip to the Bernabeu on tap. via | Bleacher Report
