The Real Madrid duo Ronaldo and Bale could be in line to feature in Wednesday’s match against Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu, with coach Zinedine Zidane having last week expressed his desire to rotate the squad. 
The pair missed Madrid’s 2-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday, a result that saw them equal Barcelona’s LaLiga record of 16 successive victories achieved in 2010-11.

Ronaldo, who only returned to action from a knee injury sustained in Portugal’s Euro 2016 final victory over France in the 5-2 win against Osasuna on September 10, sat the match out with flu.

Bale, meanwhile, was suffering from a sore hip after being caught in a challenge by Sebastian Coates in last week’s 2-1 victory over Sporting CP.
