Real Madrid handed Gareth Bale his first start since THAT flag incident.

The Welsh winger, who angered his own club's fans during the recent international break, had been jeered on two substitute appearances at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, after posing with the 'Wales, Golf, Madrid' banner, Zinedine Zidane didn't want to punish the forward, instead protecting him by benching him for a couple of weeks.

Now, in Madrid's first away game since the incident, Bale has been handed a start at Mendizorroza.

Curiously goalkeeper Alphonse Areola replaces Thibaut Courtois for the trip to the Basque Country, while Isco is given another start.
