This game is intriguing for one reason: Gareth Bale.

“Bale will travel to Villarreal and will play,” Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said Friday. ”I’m not sure if he will start or come off the bench.”

Originally there was the idea that Bale would return to his original position of left-back, incredible given his role as an offensive threat at Tottenham. He originally played there in Southampton and his first years with Tottenham. Madrid is dealing with injuries to Marcelo and Fabio Coentrao.

Ancelotti said he wants him opposite of Ronaldo, ”on the right-hand side [of attack].”

The praise for Bale has been high though.

“Bale came here without having a normal pre-season, but his condition is not bad,” he added. “He will travel tomorrow, and he will play. He has no injuries, he is excited and very motivated.

“He’s arrived full of enthusiasm and he is very happy to be at the team he wanted to join. He is a humble player who likes to be with his team-mates. He fits in well with the squad.”
