Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is out of their Champions League tie with FC Copenhagen.

The world's most expensive player was left out of Carlo Ancelotti's 21-man squad for the clash at the Bernabeu after training apart from his team-mates on Tuesday afternoon in the club's gym.

The Wales international also missed last week's matches against Getafe and Elche with "muscle fatigue" in the same thigh but returned to make his home debut for Madrid in the second half of Saturday's derby loss to Atletico.

A statement on the Madrid website confirmed Bale was struggling with a thigh problem and would undergo tests on Wednesday.
