Bale to make Madrid debut

13 September 2013 02:01

Gareth Bale will play some part for Real Madrid against Villarreal on Saturday, manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed.

All eyes are on Bale after his world-record move from Tottenham, but doubts over whether or not he will start against the Yellow Submarine exist because he has only played 32 minutes of football this season.

Ancelotti refused to confirm whether or not the Wales international will start at El Madrigal, but did say on Friday: "Bale will travel to Villarreal and will play.

"I'm not sure if he will start or come off from the bench."

When asked about where he would play, he added: "On the right hand side [of attack]."
