Gareth Bale should be fit to make his home debut for Real Madrid in the city derby with Atletico Madrid on Saturday, Los Blancos head-coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed.
The world record signing was denied his bow at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday after limping out of the warm-up ahead of the 4-1 win over Getafe.
Bale scored on his La Liga debut against Villareal before bagging an assist from the bench in the Champions League thrashing of Galatasaray in Instanbul.
The Wales international, 23, was an £86m arrival from Tottenham this summer.
Both Real and Atletico are unbeaten so far this season and while Real dropped points against Villareal, their rivals boast a 100 per cent record in the league so far.
