MADRID (AP) - Gareth Bale will return from injury in time for Real Madrid’s Champions League match against Roma.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says the forward will also be in his squad for Saturday’s match against Celta Vigo in the Spanish league. Madrid then hosts Roma on Tuesday in the round of 16 holding a 2-0 away-goal advantage from the first leg.

Bale hasn’t played since injuring his right leg during a 5-1 victory over Sporting Gijon on Jan. 17.

Injuries have limited Bale to 17 appearances in Madrid’s 35 matches this season. He has scored 13 goals.

Madrid is in third place in the Spanish league, trailing leader Barcelona by 12 points.
