Injuries

Gareth Bale at the Jose Alvalade stadium in Lisbon, Portugal against their Champions League fixture on November 22. Bale suffered an ankle injury and will not participate this Saturday.

Injuries are a major part of the game. No player in history has-not-ever been injured. However, this as a manager you hope not many from your squad are in the recovery period. As for Real, they’ll have to play without their in-form Gareth Bale. Bale’s injury is a huge loss for Real. Zidane knows how crucial Bale’s been to his side.Alvaro Morata will also miss out this match. As for Barcelona, they’ll be utterly delighted with Andres Iniesta back in the side. However, many doubt as to whether he would make it to the 90 minute mark. Jordi Alba would also be absent, opening that left-flank for the likes of Isco and Marcelo to attack. Enrique will have a tough time fllling that gap, with a defense that’s already struggling.
