While Bale's reduced minutes could be mainly attributed to injuries, Marcelo and Asensio have certainly fallen down the pecking order.

Reguilón and Vinicius Junior have been preferred to Marcelo and Asensio since Solari has taken over, with latter now being linked with an exit at the end of the season.

However, Solari insists all three players have a vital role to play in the remainder of the season.

"They are still important," Solari told the media, according to AS.

"Bale has played every game since returning from injury and is scoring goals.

"We all know what Marcelo means and Asensio has played since he came back and scored in Amsterdam [against Ajax in the Champions League] the goal that gives us the advantage.

"All are important, not only those who start the matches. Titles are earned with full squads."
