Bale hurt, to miss Madrid’s trip to Valencia
Real Madrid says forward Gareth Bale will miss Sunday’s Spanish
league match at Valencia as he recovers from a leg injury.
Bale had been expected back after missing Madrid’s win in the
Copa del Rey this week with a leg knock.
Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says Bale’s injury ”isn’t
important, but he isn’t available for Valencia because he hasn’t
had enough time to recover.”
Third-place Madrid will also be without defender Pepe, who is
serving a one-game suspension.
