Real Madrid boss Zidane happy to have Gareth Bale back

Real Madrid's faltering title defence continued as they were held to a thrilling 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo on Sunday which saw them fall 16 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona, who beat Levante 3-0 to stay nine points clear at the top of La Liga. This has all helped Celta to pick up 21 points for the season so far, but their form in their last five games, in which they have only won twice, is threatening to force them into a relegation battle for the season to come.

Celta, meanwhile, are priced at 9/2 (5.50) and the Galicians, who are usually strong at home, have only managed three wins in eight league games in front of their own fans this season.

Real coach Zidane usually leaps to the defence of his players after negative results but he was not in a forgiving mood on Sunday. They are good players and I think what they are doing is very good and we understand the difficulty of tomorrow's game well. Problems in a player's life can result in injuries.

"We do what we can, we try to play good football, score goals and circulate the ball, but it's not happening for us". "Having said that, like always I'm more interested in what we are going to do tomorrow", the Frenchman added.

"We'll try to work hard and fight so we can win our next game but we don't like this situation at all, it's difficult because the more games you draw or lose the more pressure you are under".

Bale made his first start in the league since September 20 after finally recovering from persistent muscle problems and pulled Real level after Wass's strike with a slick first-time finish before giving them the lead by knocking a pass from Isco in with his back heel. There was room to play a better game because we didn't play well for 90 minutes.
