Bale set for comeback against Espanyol

Gareth Bale is set to make his Real Madrid comeback against Espanyol today  after three months out with an ankle injury.

The Welshman  returned to full training last week  and only narrowly missed out on being named in the Madrid squad to face  Napoli  in the  Champions League  on Wednesday night.

Zinedine Zidane  did not want to take any  unnecessary risks  in rushing Bale back too soon for that match, however the 27-year old rejoined the rest of the squad for training on Thursday morning, and everything now points to a return this weekend.

If indeed Bale does make it into the match day squad for the visit of ninth-place Espanyol to the Bernabéu on Saturday afternoon (16:15 CET), he will likely start on the bench.
