Real 0-0 Atletico 1st half

Reports: Fresh Gareth Bale Injury Could Be Good News For Ireland

Gareth Bale has been left out of Real Madrid's squad to face CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Madrid, who have won the past three Champions League titles, started this campaign with a 3-0 win over Roma.

The last time these two sides met, Atletico won 4-2 after extra-time in the UEFA Super Cup.

The team have bagged 12 goals, one less than past year on day seven of the domestic league and 13 less than in the 2014/2015 season, which was remembered as one the best attacking Real Madrid sides.

Gareth Bale came close to scoring for Real in the first half but was substituted at the start of the second with a suspected groin injury although his side improved without their record signing, nearly snatching a victor in stoppage time when captain Sergio Ramos headed narrowly wide.

The Spanish defender was livid with the scoreless result against Diego Simeone's defensive-minded Atletico Madrid yesterday.

Real and Atletico began a pulsating derby less than three hours after Barca's draw at home to Bilbao, but goalkeepers reigned supreme in the capital to ensure the grudge match finished goalless.

Tropical Storm Rosa nears Mexico's Baja California coast
A map made by the National Hurricane Center shows the projected path of Tropical Storm Sergio as of 5 a.m. A Tropical Storm warning was in effect for the coast of Baja, Ca., from Punta Abreos to Cabo San Quintin.

It means Real second, level on points with Barcelona, while Atletico are just two behind in fourth.

'Ramos hasn't travelled because he has played about 120 minutes more than his team-mates, ' Lopetegui said, according to Goal.

However, Simeone emphasised the importance of striker Diego Costa instead, telling the press: "I see him being in fantastic form and for me, in the first half the other day, above all else he played very well".

"But we were far superior to Atletico Madrid, in the end of first half and entire second half".

"It was a hard match, as it always is when we play here", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. Los Blancos missed the chance to make the most of leaders Barcelona's unexpected loss at Leganes when they went down 3-0 at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday night.

'Unfortunately we couldn't get that goal.

Griezmann attempted an audacious volley that flew over and then came his team's best chance when he only had Courtois to beat. "It was a pity not to win today".
