REAL MADRID 2 - 2 BRUGGE

Bale arrived late for the Real Madrid v Brugge game

Deportes Cuatro filmed the Welsh forward arriving at the Bernabéu once the Champions League game had already started.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale turned up late on Tuesday evening for his side’s match against Brugge in the Champions League, which finished 2-2. Spanish TV show Deportes Cuatro filmed Bale arriving at the ground at 18:59, when the game had kicked off at 18:55.

Bale not called up, but still required to be at the game

The club require that players, even when not in the squad as Bale wasn’t, are at the ground before the whistle goes.

This isn’t the first time Bale’s fallen foul of Real Madrid’s rules on players attending games. In January Bale left the ground in the 78th minute of the LaLiga game against Real Sociedad.

Bale was left out for the Champions League game against Brugge despite being seemingly fit.
