Gareth Bale: Struggling with thigh injury

Bale has been struggling with injury since he arrived in the Spanish capital following his world-record transfer from Tottenham, and has appeared in just two league games so far.

He had already been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League clash with FC Copenhagen but this latest diagnosis suggests a longer absence.

"After the tests carried out today, the player Gareth Bale has been diagnosed with a muscle contracture in his left thigh," said a statement on the Real Madrid website.

"It remains to be seen how the condition develops."

He is likely to miss Saturday's La Liga game at Levante and may not be able to join up with Wales for their World Cup qualifiers at home to Macedonia on October 11 and away to Belgium four days later.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
