Soccer – Bale to miss Super Cup showdown

Gareth Bale has been ruled out of Real Madrid's Uefa Super Cup showdown with Sevilla on Tuesday night. Real, who are 10/11 with bet365 to beat Sevilla inside 90 minutes, will be forced to field a weakened team without a host of first-team regulars. Along with Bale, fellow stars who featured at Euro 2016 will also be given further rest ahead of the new La Liga campaign. Portugal talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and countryman Pepe, along with Germany's Toni Kroos will all sit out the encounter with the Europa League champions in Trondheim, Norway.
