Gareth Bale has been left out of Real Madrid’s 24-man squad for the Champions League match against Manchester City on Friday at the Etihad.
The Spanish champions are 2-1 down after the first leg of the last-16 tie at the Bernabeu in February.
Real Madrid recently won the La Liga title with 10 straight wins following the restart, but Bale played just 99 minutes.
It has been a difficult season overall for the 31-year-old Wales international, who has scored just three goals and made 14 starts across all competitions.
But his agent Jonathan Barnett recently told the BBC Bale had two years left on his Real Madrid contract and was not intending to leave.
Real Madrid travel with captain Sergio Ramos to the Etihad Stadium.
However, the defender is not eligible to play any part in the match due to his red card in the last minutes of the first leg defeat.
