MADRID, Spain -- Gareth Bale has recovered from a left leg knock and is in Real Madrid's squad for Monday's Spanish league home match against Celta Vigo.
Bale missed Madrid's last league match at Valencia before the two-week winter break. He also was left off its squad for a friendly earlier this week against Paris Saint-Germain.
Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says Bale is fit but that he "has to decide if (Bale) will play" or rest until the Wales winger is in "optimum condition."
Madrid is in third place in the league behind Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
