Midfielder Luka Modric has also been omitted from Zinedine Zidane’s 19-man group for the trip to La Rosaleda.

It had been suggested Ronaldo would be given a rest in the wake of Wednesday’s dramatic Champions League quarter-final second-leg with Juventus, in which his injury-time penalty secured a 4-3 aggregate win for the holders.

Bale had been tipped to start alongside Karim Benzema against LaLiga’s bottom club, but the Wales star is also reported to have been given the game off to rest.
