Gareth Bale is back on the bench for Real Madrid‘s crunch game at home to Ajax in the second leg of the Champions League last 16.

Bale had started the defeat to Barcelona in La Liga on Saturday but the Welshman departed to whistles in the second half and has been dropped for the return against Ajax, with Madrid 2-1 ahead from the first leg.

Isco came on against Barca but is not even named on the bench while Marcelo is again named as a substitute, Sergio Reguilon preferred at left-back.

Ajax start with an unchanged side from the opening leg, with Frenkie de Jong set to play at the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time. De Jong will join Barcelona in the summer.
