Gareth Bale passed fit for Real Madrid's game against Las Palmas

Gareth Bale has been passed fit for Real Madrid's home game against Las Palmas on Wednesday, the club have confirmed.

Bale has played twice as a substitute since coming back after an ankle operation before starting and scoring in Sunday's win at Villarreal.

The Wales international went over on the same ankle late on and was substituted but has taken a full part in training this week and is likely to start at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, coach Zinedine Zidane has continued his rotation policy, with Casemiro replaced in the 19-man squad by youngster Marco Asensio.

Casemiro is the only player to feature in each of Madrid's 13 fixtures in 2017.

Mateo Kovacic is likely to deputise in midfield against Las Palmas, who have lost their last four La Liga games, and never won at the Bernabeu in 37 visits.
