Real Madrid vs RCD Espanyol

Real Madrid vs RCD Espanyol

Gareth Bale has been left out of Real Madrid's squad to face Espanyol on Sunday, with the Wales global nursing a calf complaint.

Madrid are seven points behind Liga leaders Barcelona in sixth place in the Liga standings after dropping points in each of their three home games this season. It is a strain, so nothing too significant. "It's muscle fatigue, but we don't like to take any risks". "We will see if Gareth is with us tomorrow".

"We want to keep doing what we've been doing and to win well", he said.

On Sunday October 1, 2017 at 21:45, in Madrid at the stadium "Santiago Bernabéu" the capital's Real Madrid will play against Hispaniola in the 7th round of the Championship of Spain.

"We can change all of [the talk about poor home form]. Now we have a game to change this". We don't live in the past and what has happened has happened.

"I'm not getting involved in that. They could sit back or they could come out and play, what we have to do is our work and try to make sure things go well for us from the start".

Bookmakers probably rub their hands on the eve of the next home match of Real Madrid.

Real made no announcement on the injury, which was originally thought to only be a cramp, but Zidane said Bale had a small calf strain.

Tottenham's Harry Kane downs Huddersfield with a brace
Hugo Lloris, acting as a sweeper keeper, generally dealt with any ball played in behind the defensive line. Huddersfield is in the 8th place with 9 points and Tottenham Hotspur is in the 4th place with 11 points.

RCD Espanyol: Quique Sanchez Flores has confirmed that first-teamers Pablo Piatti and Victor Sanchez are out with muscular injuries, while Hernan Perez was not amongst the 18 man squad that travelled.

Los Blancos are still playing catch-up with Barca, who reclaimed a five-point lead at the head of the table earlier on Sunday, overcoming a slow start in front of an empty Camp Nou to beat Las Palmas 3-0.

Despite Real Madrid's relatively rocky start, Bale has started the season in good form, scoring against Real Sociedad recently and also against Borussia Dortmund.

It's unclear why there is such a difference in results at home and away this season, but the demands of the fans in the Bernabeu, where nothing else than a win will suffice, could be one reason and supporters have been quick to latch onto errors and boo players such as Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.
