​Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale looks set to miss his side's crucial upcoming games after aggravating a calf injury in the 2-1 win at Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.


​The Spanish press have claimed that Bale will now miss Madrid's Champions League return-leg against Bayern next week.

The 27-year-old had only returned to the first-team in February having been sidelined for three months earlier in the season.


Bale's latest setback is his 10th since joining the club in 2013 and Zinedine Zidane is reportedly losing patience with the injury-prone Welshman.


​Don Balon report that Zidane could be looking to offload one of Bale, Ronaldo or Benzema this summer, with the former Tottenham man looking the most likely to depart.


The Real Madrid boss confirmed that Bale felt a 'tweak' in his calf at half-time and was taken off for precautionary reasons.

"He felt a tweak at half time and I didn’t want to take any risks. He doesn’t feel so good, we hope it’s nothing major. But I’m happy with the substitution and with Asensio’s performance.” Zidane told reporters after the game.


Arturo Vidal put Bayern ahead in a dominant first-half for Bayern, but Madrid battled back in the second-half, scoring twice through their talismanic forward Cristiano Ronaldo.


Los Blancos were given a helping hand when Spanish defender Javi Martinez stupidly got himself sent off for two yellow cards.


Carlo Ancelotti's side now travel to the Bernabeu needing at least two goals, leaving Madrid as huge favourites to qualify for the semi-finals.
