While Gareth Bale is fully expected to regain his place in the Real Madrid side when he returns from injury, teammate Isco is making the most of his chance to prove his worth on the pitch.Coach Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that a fit Bale, who became the world's most expensive player when he joined Real in 2013, will always be in his preferred starting lineup in a three-pronged attack with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.Real have not said when Bale, who is sidelined with a buttock muscle strain and last played in the 5-0 La Liga win over Athletic Bilbao on Oct. 5, might return but he is unlikely to be ready for Tuesday's Champions League Group B game at home to Liverpool.
