Without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale led Madrid back from a 2-0 deficit with a double in a hard-fought 3-2 win at Rayo Vallecano Saturday to keep Real just a point adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.However, with City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan having spent an estimated 800 million pounds ($1.2 billion) on transfer fees in the past decade, Bale refused to accept City are underdogs.Ronaldo is expected to be fit and will receive a hostile reception at the Etihad Stadium after winning three Premier League titles and a Champions League during six years at Manchester United.City's 28-goal Argentine striker Sergio Aguero will also be facing a familiar foe having spent five years with Atletico Madrid.
