As Spanish media, above all the specialty sheets Marca and AS, report, head coach Carlo Ancelotti did not call the 29-year-old into the training group, who was prepared for the Mancity game on Wednesday on Monday.
He was “practically excluded” for the game.
It is not known what injury Alaba suffered.
However, the international took part in the master celebrations.
The former Bayern professional could replace Nacho, who had already taken Alaba’s place in the first leg at the beginning of the second half.
The defense lawyer’s failure still affects the royal, Alaba posted the most play minutes this season after goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Militao.
The relationship between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid is already heavily contaminated, the farewell in the summer in principle seals. Now the dissonances have reached a new level due to an alleged violation of the Welsh.
Bale will not be available to the royal in the league game against Espanyol Barcelona due to back pain, it is said. There are obviously doubts about Real, because Spanish journalist Carlos Rodriguez of the radio station ONDA Madrid wrote on Twitter that the club would like to think about a punishment for the wing striker.
It is not the first time that Bale cannot play because of complaints that are hardly understandable for Real. The absences are “suspicious” and would not convince the medical department.
Most recently, this had happened when Bale also complained about his painting back in front of the Clasico against FC Barcelona (0: 4), but trained with the teammates of the Welsh national team the day after the game. In the duel with Barca, he wasn’t even present in the stadium.

However, according to Rodriguez, he also thinks how sensible a sanction is still in view of the upcoming separation and the fact that greater restlessness is only an unnecessary interference factor in the crucial season phase.
