Gareth Bale suffered a suspected calf injury as he was substituted at half time during Real’s 2-2 midweek draw against Villarreal at El Madrigal. Former Arsenal star Santi Cazorla scored twice as the Yellow Submarines held Santiago Solari’s men to a draw.
Bale played the first half, with Real leading 2-1 at the interval thanks to goals from Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema, but was replaced by Isco when the two teams came out after the break.
Real’s next game will be at home to Real Sociedad, while Villarreal will travel to Eibar this weekend.
A 19,903 strong crowd was present to watch Villarreal’s clash against Los Blancos.
