Real Madrid star out for Paris Saint-Germain clash

Gareth Bale

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has reinjured his calf muscle and will be out indefinitely, Real Madrid stated on Monday.

The injury means the Welshman will miss the Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

“Following the tests carried out on Gareth Bale in the Sanitas la Moraleja University Hospital, the player has been diagnosed with a soleus muscle injury in his left leg. His recovery will continue to be assessed,” the club said on their website.

Bale played 45 minutes in Real Madrid’s 3-0 win against Levante and was substituted by Lucas Vazquez. AS reported that he went to a private clinic on Sunday and did not train with the team on Monday.

Last month, Bale limped out on the Champions League Group A win against Shakhtar Donetsk with a calf injury, the fourth time in just two year that he has injured the leg.

Bale also played in both international games for Wales’ historic Euro 2016 qualification against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Andorra. Qualification which came despite a defeat against Bosnia, only for Cyprus to defeated Israel in Jerusalem and end the Israelites chances of qualifying on the top-two spot.

“After the 2-0 score and with the intense week he had, we saw that he was tired and that was the moment to put fresh legs in the match,” Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez said.

AS have reported that it is likely for Bale to miss Saturday’s La Liga game against Celta Vigo as well.
