Madrid: Gareth Bale will miss Real Madrid's final game of the year away to Valencia on Sunday due to an inflamed calf muscle, Real boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed.

Bale was absent from Wednesday's 2-0 win over Olimpic Xativa in the Copa del Rey after picking up the injury in training on Tuesday.

However, Ancelotti insisted the injury is not too serious, suggesting the Welshman will be fully fit by the time Real return to action after the winter break on January 6.
