Copa Del Rey By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 28/11/2017

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Gareth Bale will make the squad list against Fuenlabrada on Tuesday in the Copa Del Rey.

Bale is yet to feature for Los Blancos since he scored in the 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

The Welsh forward suffered a calf injury during the clash and later had an injury to his hamstring in training shortly before he was due to return.

Gareth Bale wants to retire at Real Madrid 

 “The idea is that Bale plays, we will see how long that is for,” Zidane told a news conference on Monday. “He will be with us tomorrow. I want to see Bale at 100 percent as soon as possible, but I can’t say when that will be. He’s doing well, he just has to play.”

Real Madrid will also welcome back Matteo Kovacic, Keylor Navas but Jesus Vallejo won't be available for selection due to suspension.

Real Madrid won the first clash against Fuenlabrada with a score line of 2-0 and go into the tie with a two-goal margin.
