Bale Injures Calf Muscle, Likely to Miss Atletico Match
MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid says Gareth Bale has injured a calf muscle in his left leg and will likely miss Wednesday's match against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals.
Madrid says its medical team "diagnosed a muscle injury in the soleus muscle of the left leg."
During Madrid's 3-1 win over Malaga on Saturday, Bale made signs with his hands that looked like a tearing motion.
Madrid will also be without injured midfielder Luka Modric for the match against Atletico.
