Real Madrid not risking Gareth Bale for Napoli game in Champions League

We're in good shape and we've got all the players back. After a first round 2-0, Real Madrid drew the second leg 1-1. "He's recovered, he's not feeling any discomfort and you'll see if he makes it to the squad on the weekend" for the match against Espanyol, Zidane said on Tuesday.

However, Zidane suggested that the former Lyon striker will continue in his line-up when Real Madrid host Napoli on Wednesday, pointing out that Benzema's work for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of his teammates is also key.

Head coach Zinedine Zidane even said earlier that Bale could play a part in the game. "That is our message of course but, more than that, what I want is to keep doing what we have been doing and remain focused".

"Small players - the type I do not like [to face]".

"Karim allows other players score".

"We have the tools to do them harm and we want to do that".

"We kind of knew what sort of injury he had and the timings of it and he's on track". We expect something similar here, with the 3-1 correct score worth a punt at 10.5, but we're going to make Real to win and both teams to score our standout selection. The final is in Cardiff but we've got a knockout game now which we must fight in, against a very good opponent that will make things hard for us. However, whilst they didn't concede a goal at the Bernabeu in this competition last season, they're without a clean sheet there this term and in the league they've kept only three clean sheets in their 11 home games.
