Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale was the focus of unwanted attention in the Spanish media Thursday after the 100 million euro ($123 million) signing was left out of the team's starting lineup for the third time in four games.Coach Zinedine Zidane selected Bale to start against Real Betis Sunday but he had little impact in his side's thrilling 5-3 win, missing two clear chances in the second half before being substituted, and he was not directly involved in any of Madrid's goals.Bale is among Real's highest-paid players after signing a bumper new contract in 2016 but his last two seasons at the club have been blighted by injury.Rather like last season, when Madrid swept to the Liga and Champions League titles when Bale was mostly on the sidelines, his drop in influence has coincided with a resurgence in his team, who have won four games in a row in all competitions.
