Madrid: Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has confirmed Gareth Bale sustained an injury to his thigh during the goalless draw with Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
Bale was substituted at half-time at the Santiago Bernabeu and is now a doubt for Real's Champions League game against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.
"Gareth had discomfort in his thigh," Lopetegui said after the match. "He came off as a precaution and we will see tomorrow what the injury is."
Bale has scored four goals in his last seven games for Real and any absence would be a major blow.
