Gareth Bale didn't travel to Saudi Arabia with Madrid and instead remained in Madrid to work on his fitness. Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said the Wales forward is available for Thursday's meeting with Elche.

"He will be in the squad and all those who are have the chance to play from the beginning or as a sub. It can also happen that they don't play," Ancelotti confirmed on Wednesday. First choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will not be available due to injury.

Elche come into this one after beating Almería 2-1 in the previous round. The men from the east will be hopeful of getting a result against Madrid after showing a good display in the same fixture back in October. On that day, the in-form Vinicius scored a brace to help Madrid to a 2-1 away win.
