Gareth Bale and Pepe are the only injury concerns facing coach Zinedine Zidane ahead of Real Madrid’s trip to Granada tomorrow.


The Welsh forward, who continues to rehab a muscular injury in his right leg, spent a second consecutive day training inside the club’s Valdebebas facility away from the rest of the squad. The club’s record signing has struggled with muscle problems in Spain, this being his fifth calf muscle injury since joining Real Madrid from Spurs in 2013.
