Spanish Papers: Bale is back for Real MadridNovember 28, 2017
Gareth Bale features in our round up of the Spanish Papers, whilst Lionel Messi is also centre of attention after his disallowed goal against Valencia.
Welsh international Bale is set to return for Madrid in the Copa del Rey against lowly Fuenlabrada on Tuesday evening, returning after 63 days out injured.
Bale’s time at Madrid has been successful but multiple injuries have seen playing time become less and less, matched with the form of Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez, who have kept the former Tottenham Hotspur winger out of the starting eleven.
Marca also look at Bale’s return, before focusing on Athletic Club keeper Kepa, who looks unlikely to face Real Madrid at the weekend due to injury.
The young Basque keeper has been interesting Los Blancos’ officials due to his form this season.
Finally, Mundo Deportivo are still banging on about that goal which was not seen by officials on Sunday evening as Barcelona drew with Valencia.
The Catalan daily pick up on comments made by Messi to match officials, and claim that La Liga must hurry to get VAR technology used in the Spanish league.
Messi’s goal would have seen Barca beat Valencia, but goals from Rodrigo and Jordi Alba saw the top two share the points.
