Gareth Bale might miss up to two months of action due to his injury in a training session and Eden Hazard could also miss Real Madrid's game against Valencia on Sunday.

Gareth Bale

suffered a muscle problem in his right leg during a training session last week and missed both of

Real Madrid

’s victories over Celta and Inter in La Liga and the Champions League respectively, according to



Real Madrid boss

Carlo Ancelotti

admitted that it is not clear when he will be able to come back and it might take up to two months which means he could miss the first Clasico of the season against Barcelona on October 24.

"We don't know how much time he needs, the injury is pretty serious and it is hard to give a time,"

Ancelotti explained to reporters on Saturday.

"He was doing quite well, he was working hard, we have to wait."

Eden Hazard

also was left on the bench for their Wednesday’s victory and he might even miss their game against Valencia on Sunday as Ancelotti prefers to remain cautious over his availability.

"Hazard didn't play because of a minor knee complaint, it was also bothering him yesterday (Friday),"

he explained.

"We will see what happens. Hazard has improved his condition and we have to be careful because he has suffered from injuries in the past and playing him for two straight games could be a little more difficult. 

"He is not in the shape that we all want him to be but he is working and we are fully confident that he will get back to his best.”
