Real Madrid honouring Barcelona would be 'humiliating' - Javier Tebas

"He had a good season in Porto and returned to Real Madrid with more confidence and better known both by the club and the press".

Despite what has been labelled a miserable season for the Wales global, mainly due to yet another injury-ridden year minimising his opportunities for the defending Spanish and European champions, the attacker has still managed to grab 13 goals and four assists from 16 starts.

Sergio Ramos is likely to return, having been suspended in midweek, but Zidane is expected to rest other key players for the match.

Real had clinched last season's Liga title on their last trip to Malaga.

The 25-year-old scored a stupendous brace during the astonishing 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City earlier this month, and the midfielder needs to find the balance between attack and defence in order to truly transform into the club's go-to man.

Despite a plucky performance against a Real side playing in second gear, Malaga remain rooted to the bottom of La Liga with just 17 points and are extremely unlikely to avoid relegation now.

Real host Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday and Bale will be hoping for another chance to state his case ahead of the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich next week.

Real have now won each of their last eight league games when those two have not played, scoring 28 goals in the process.

Manchester United are "desperate" to sign Real Madrid playmaker Isco in the summer transfer window, a report claims. And like a fine wine, he should continue to improve with age.

The Spanish new publication also said that Real Madrid are expecting the former Basel forward force his way out of the Anfield side in a bid to join the La Liga side this summer.

"He is a fantastic player and we want him to be many years with us".
