La Liga risks losing some of its leading players if tax reforms proposed by the Spanish government go ahead, league president Javier Tebas has warned. In a letter addressed to every club in Spain's top flight, Tebas declared the league's opposition to the government's budget draft for 2019 which he says could cost the 20 clubs a combined 80 million euros. "All these measures imply a negative impact on the accounts of clubs and affect more than 750 players and coaches," said the letter, signed by Tebas.

As a symbol of Wales’s ability to prosper without Gareth Bale, it was pretty much perfect. Ryan Giggs’s men were toiling in their Nations League game against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Tuesday when Connor Roberts won a free-kick just outside the Irish box, a little to the right of centre, in the 58th minute. It would have been Bale territory if the Real Madrid star had not been sidelined.

Midfielder Joe Allen says Wales' 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland showed they can cope without star men Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. Harry Wilson's second half free-kick secured a second Nations League win for a youthful Wales side. The game in Dublin was Wales' first competitive fixture without their two leading players since Ramsey's debut in 2008. "It was important for us to cope without those two players," Allen said. "Everyone knows that they're special players, but it's important for us as a team to work to get a result when they're not here." Wales were without injured Real Madrid forward Bale while Arsenal midfielder Ramsey left the squad after his wife gave birth to twin boys. Manager

Wales overcame the absences of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey as Harry Wilson's stunning free-kick earned a 1-0 away Nations League victory over the Republic of Ireland. Wilson scored with a wonderful set-piece in Derby County's penalty shootout defeat of Manchester United in the EFL Cup last month, and the midfielder produced a similar moment of magic to light up a tight contest Dublin. Buoyed by a point against Denmark in their last outing, Ireland had started well, but Cyrus Christie and Shane Duffy squandered the best of the chances Martin O'Neill's side managed to craft.

KRC Gent goalkeeper Kevin Frans had a game he’ll never forget on Sunday, October 14, when he helped his club salvage a point in the Belgian fourth tier by scoring a last-minute equalizer against Olsa Brakel. Gent had started the second half trailing the hosts by two goals but were able to recover through a header from Jorgo Waeghe. Then, keeper Frans moved forward in the dying moments – a popular tactic that usually comes to nothing. Not this time, however, as Frans stuck in an acrobatic 94th-minute equalizer that would have done Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale proud. Credit: KRC Gent via Storyful

Real Madrid would be wrong to panic-buy a new striker in the January transfer window, according to former head coach Bernd Schuster. Karim Benzema hit five in four games at the start of the season but is now without a goal in his last seven appearances, while Gareth Bale has gone four league games without scoring and Mariano Diaz has only netted once since his return from Lyon. Schuster, though, has warned Madrid against signing another forward in early 2019 as he thinks it unlikely any top-class players will be made available.

Despite Gareth Bale having come off the pitch ten minutes from the end of the Alavés game with muscle fatigue, he still travelled to meet up with the Welsh national squad. Julen Lopetegui must be wondering what on earth is happening. On arrival in Wales Gareth was immediately ruled out of making an appearance against his Real team mates on Thursday and at that time was reported to have only a 50 - 50 chance of playing in Wales’ second international this Tuesday against Ireland. Finally some common sense has prevailed and Gareth will be returning to Madrid on Monday; but it’s still almost unbelievable that he’s been in Wales for more than a week after such a negative prognosis from the Wales medical team.

Two of the three goals Liverpool conceded in a 3-1 defeat in Kiev were the direct result of Karius errors, with the 25-year-old throwing the ball straight to Karim Benzema and fumbling a long-range Gareth Bale shot into his own net. Karius was reduced to tears at the final whistle and found himself heavily criticised by a section of Liverpool supporters, as well as becoming a figure of fun for rival fans, despite the fact that the club subsequently concluded he had sustained a concussion in a collision with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos prior to the mistakes.
