Gareth Bale's inclusion remains in doubt

Gareth Bale remains a major doubt for Real Madrid's Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu this evening.

Gareth Bale remains a major doubt for Real Madrid's Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu due to illness.

The Welshman has been suffering with flu over the last couple of days, which prevented him from staying at the club's private hotel before the clash against Bayern this evening.

Reports in Spain have suggested that it is 50/50, with head coach Carlo Ancelotti due to make a decision at the final moment.

Ancelotti faces a similar decision with Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been on the sidelines with a knee complaint.

Should Bale and Ronaldo both miss out, Angel di Maria and Isco will reportedly start alongside Karim Benzema in a three-pronged attack.
