ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti left world record signing Gareth Bale out of his team for Tuesday's Champions League Group B match at Galatasaray.
Bale, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of 100 million euros (83.89 million pounds) earlier this month, played for just over an hour and scored on his debut in Saturday's 2-2 La Liga draw at Villarreal.
The Wales winger is among the substitutes for Tuesday's match in Istanbul, according to www.UEFA.com.
