GARETH BALE TO MISS CRUCIAL GAMES AHEAD

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale could miss crucial games in the end-of-season run-in after suffering a calf injury.

The club have described the problem as a “grade two” injury, but have not given a time frame for his absence.

Spanish newspaper AS has reported the Wales forward, 27, will be out for three to four weeks.

Real face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final next Tuesday, with the final in Cardiff on 3 June.

Bale, 27, came off after 39 minutes in Sunday’s El Clasico defeat by Barcelona.
