Bale out for the third time….


Gareth Bale has suffered his third calf muscle injury of the season, Real Madrid have confirmed. Bale, 26, limped off shortly before half-time during Real’s 5-1 La Liga win at home to Sporting Gijon on Sunday. The Welshman, who scored his 13th goal of the season when he opened the scoring in the seventh minute, is expected to be out for three weeks. “He has been diagnosed with a soleus (calf) muscle injury in his right leg,” Real said on their website. “His recovery will continue to be assessed.”
