Bale a doubt for Rayo tie

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has a foot problem and could miss Wednesday's La Liga game at Rayo Vallecano when Real will look to keep up the pressure on leaders Barcelona, coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Tuesday.

Bale's absence, if confirmed, would allow Ancelotti to put off having to make a tough choice between James Rodriguez or Isco in midfield alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

James played for the first time after a two-month injury layoff in Sunday's 9-1 drubbing of Granada and Isco is back from a one-match suspension, meaning Ancelotti could use both.
