Ancelotti: 'Bale could face Juve'

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti hinted Gareth Bale could “start against Juventus” in the Champions League.

The Coach was speaking after today’s 2-0 victory over Malaga, as they face the Turin giants on Wednesday.

“It was a very good game. I hope we will play with the same intensity against Juventus in the Champions League next week.

“We worked harder in defence. We focused on recovering possession faster and creating chances in attack – and that’s definitely something that happened this afternoon.

“I'm happy with how we played, but we have to continue improving. Bale is fit to play. He has three days of training and then we will decide if he starts against Juve.

“I think Varane will also be available for the match.”
